Poster of a Lockdown Song in a Kindergarten Classroom Is Heartbreakingly Sad



It’s almost impossible for people over the age of 40 to imagine this happening in their schools when they were growing up. But, sadly, school shootings are such a common phenomenon in American schools so kids have to learn how to stay in place should a shooting take place. A mother named Georgy Cohen shared this poster from a kindergarten class.

The lyrics to the song read:

Lockdown. Lockdown.

Lock the door.

Shut the lights off.

Say no more.

Go behind the desk and hide.

Wait until it’s safe inside.

Lockdown. Lockdown.

It’s all done.

Now it’s time to have some fun!

Cohen’s tweet went viral and other Twitter users weighed in on the topic.

Cohen added that her child had already been taught lockdown drills in pre-kindergarten classes.

Cohen further added that Americans should call their congressional representatives to advocate for gun reform.
