In the latest WH press briefing 13 year-old Benje Choucroun, a student at Marin Country Day School asked a very honest question. It was good to see Sarah Sanders take it to seriously and visibly choked up by it. It's no secret these horrendous school shootings need to stop and I think it all starts with moments like this. More on this here.

@PressSec I saw you choking up at today's press briefing in regards to young Benje Choucroun's question. I saw your humanity on display, and I want to say, please, I urge you to be part of the solution. For his sake and so many other kids. Please.— never again (@wondergal100) May 30, 2018
