Collins Sara Israelsen-Hartley | June 27, 2018 at 10:00 pm MDT When Em’s history teacher assigned a research project, the Salt Lake sophomore, 15, felt her stomach lurch. Weeks before the due date, she’s already worried about what could go wrong. Like any assignment, she’ll sketch it out repeatedly to see how it fits. But the hours researching, distilling, then mapping it will not bolster her for the class presentation, where she’s supposed to briefly explain the poster. She expects that to be a spectacle: five minutes of misery she says she’d gladly swap for a barefoot jog on barbed wire. She’ll visibly tremble. Her voice will shake and sound reedy.

It’s a reminder of what life used to be like with Zoe, her next-door neighbor. And it was a funny moment in a young friendship: While Zoe was writing, Coe stubbed her toe on a wall. Like any good friend would do, Zoe amended her year-end send-off: “Umm awkward … you just hurt your toe … hahaha!” When Coe graduates from Marysville-Pilchuck High School this week, she’ll think of that day. It was a time when she still thought school was safe, when she could eat lunch in a cafeteria without anxiety, when she wasn’t wary of crowds. But the terrible memories of that … [Read more...] about They survived a school shooting as freshmen. Four years later, a diploma doesn’t erase the pain.
