More than 20 killed in 2018 shootings at United States schools

If you had a pit in the stomach this morning when you sent your kids off to school you were probably not alone. I certainly did

White House deputy press secretary Lindsay Walters says Trump will not make the trip that had been meant to promote the president's infrastructure proposal. He's urging Americans to "create a culture in our country that embraces the dignity of life that creates deep and meaningful human connections".

For Kurth, words don't cut it anymore: "As educators, we're taught that actions speak louder than words", she said.

It was not immediately clear whether Trump would be heading to Parkland, Florida, the site of the school shooting.

Carroll wears bracelets reading "Vegas Strong" every day, memorializing the deadliest mass shooting attack in USA history, and the one which will forever be ingrained in her memory.

"Whatever you do, do something because I, for one, am very, very, very, very exhausted of this", he said before showing clips of politicians and the president saying it's too early to talk about gun control.

The mother of a 14-year-old killed in the mass shooting makes a heart-wrenching plea to Donald Trump.

He pledged to work with state and local officials to "help secure our schools and tackle the hard issue of mental health", adding that safe schools would be a key focus when he meets with governors and state attorneys general later this month.

"Are we coming to expect these mass shootings as a kind of routine matter?"

A moment of silence was observed in the US Senate, but the Democrats' house minority leader Nancy Pelosi said politicians can't afford to stay silent. "These kids need safety now".

"She kept texting me and she kept saying she was fine, and she was hiding", Rozenblatt told PEOPLE.

While we're at it, thanks for the moment of silence on the state House floor over which Speaker Richard Corcoran presided as news of the slaughter spread.

"This is one of those moments where we just need to step back and count our blessings", he said. "We need action. We have to do something".

Florida already allows people to buy firearms without a permit or license, and does not require guns to be registered.

On February 14, a gunman entered shot dead 17 people in a Florida high school.

"My friends are dead", one student said. The Legislature has been nothing but silent for years when it comes to even addressing the concept of tougher gun control laws to regulate the weaponry.

"I hope we can get it done in this generation. But if we don't, they will".

"I will be leaving for Florida today to meet with some of the bravest people on earth - but people whose lives have been totally shattered", Trump tweeted Friday morning.
