On Wednesday, President Trump hosted survivors of recent school shootings in a "listening session" to discuss ways that these tragedies might be prevented in the future.

Spring training got off to a solemn start as Major League Baseball teams wore hats to honor Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where 17 people were fatally shot nine days ago.

Meanwhile, many in the community said Peterson should have done more. "We must take care of our kids". Part of the plan includes requiring one armed officer - either a sworn sheriff's deputy or a police officer - for every 1,000 students at every school by the start of the 2018 school year in the fall.

Trump also suggested increase the minimum age to purchase certain guns, which the National Rifle Association (NRA) opposes.

"Please don't let this type of event discourage you or make you be afraid to become a teacher because in this world it is more important now than it ever has been", she said. Authorities have said that Cruz, who was expelled from Stoneman Douglas High past year for unspecified disciplinary problems, used a semiautomatic AR-15-style assault rifle in the attack. "That is not the answer".

"People need to be held accountable".

"He trained his whole life but when it came time to do something he didn't have the courage", he said.

"It was very emotional, very emotional, everybody was hugging and kissing each other, sad, very sad", said teacher Evelyn Rosario of the reunion.

"Armed Educators (and trusted people who work within a school) love our students and will protect them", Trump tweeted.

"And the beauty is it's concealed", Trump said.

"He communicates and uses appropriate resources at his disposal including mental health professionals", said Lt. Michael DeVita in Peterson's 2016/2017 review. I think then we would stand a better chance of getting a real solution.

Scot Peterson has resigned after being suspended without pay.

"It's just a day to connect with them, for them to connect with each other, and do what we can to just help in the transition", said Broward Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie. The school had run a drill earlier in the day, but remembering the school's culinary program, Posada believed there could have been an issue and escorted her students out of the classroom.

The 19-year-old had amassed multiple guns following his mother's death in November, and had posted on social media that "he wants to kill people", the caller said, describing a history of disruptive and violent behavior. "I know I had enough hugs to last me a lifetime".

The sheriff's office opened an internal investigation into Peterson after seeing video of the school and after interviewing witnesses and Peterson himself.

Peterson, who had served in uniform for more than three decades, is now off the force and facing criticism for not going in to confront the shooter.

The revelation prompted Republican governor Rick Scott to call for the resignation of FBI Director Christopher Wray.

The teachers are already preparing and searching for the words to say.
