The Millennium Shield Backpack will not only protects your child but also be used as a normal backpack would.
When I first heard of this idea from creator Susan Agostinelli I was very excited. The thought that children across the United States could have a way of being protected in the event of a school shooting or even a stray bullet on their walk to school or back home was like Wow. Why did this idea take so long to come into play?
When Was the First Documented School Shooting?
I decided to look back and see when the first documented school shootings occurred. I was surprised to see that the first known/dated on was in 1874. The Enoch Brown school massacre during the Pontiac’s War totaled 10 dead and 2 injured. So although school shootings are more well known now due to the news and social media, they have been happening for hundreds of years. We just didn’t know about them because the word didn’t travel like it does today.
I was born in 1969 so I was curious how many school shootings had occurred from 1874-January 1969. One hundred and forty. That is only the number of shootings, not a number of kids and teens shot. Since 1969 there has been well over 300 more school shootings.
We protect our children in car seats and booster seats in our vehicles. We want them to be safe and protected. I am hoping the Millennium Shield backpack takes off like wildfire for our children.
