Mother of Florida shooting victim calls on President Trump for change
The mother of a victim in the Parkland school shooting is speaking out, asking for change following her tragic daughter's death.
Alyssa Alhadeeff, a 14-year-old freshman at Stoneman Douglas High was killed in the shooting Wednesday.
Her mother, Lori Alhadeeff told WSVN, “Alyssa was so smart and beautiful, helpful, creative, outgoing. She always wants to go to the next event, the next activity. She loved everybody, trusted everybody. She was an amazing soccer player.”
In an interview with CNN Lori Alhadeef said, "How, he do we allow a gunman to come into our children's school? How do they get through security? What security is there? There's no metal detectors. The gunman - a crazy person just walks right into the school, knocks down the window of my child's door. Starts shooting, shooting her and killing her. President Trump, you say, 'What can you do?' You can stop the guns from getting into these children's hands. Put metal detectors at every entrance to the schools. What can you do? You can do a lot. This is not fair to our families that our children go to school and have to get killed. I just spent the last two hours putting the burial arrangements for my daughter's funeral, who's 14. President Trump, please do something. Do something. Action. We need it now. These kids need safety now."
