David Hogg, a 17-year-old student journalist who interviewed his classmates during
the rampage in Parkland, said he had thought about the possibility of a school
shooting long before shots from an AR-15 started to blast through the hallways. As
he huddled with fellow students, he stayed calm and decided to try to create a
record of their thoughts and views that would live on, even if the worst happened to
“I recorded those videos because I didn’t know if I was going to survive,” he said in
an interview here. “But I knew that if those videos survived, they would echo on
and tell the story. And that story would be one that would change things, I hoped.
And that would be my legacy.” (New York Times, February 16, 2018)
