West Des Moines native and olympian Shawn Johnson had a very scary day yesterday. She and her family, including her two children, live in Nashville. Her kids' school was placed on lockdown during the mass shooting at Covenant Presbyterian School. She was filming across the street yesterday when the shooting happened. She witnessed the parents rushing to make sure their kids were ok and saw all of the sirens and chaos.
She wrote a very reflective post about the unsettling day on Instagram this morning upon waking. We all are forever changed, and the world needs to change, quickly. 129 mass shooting IN THE UNITED STATES this year.
