Working together for safer schools

She used to think safety was someone else's job, but then she painfully learned that is not the truth.

Those are the words from Michelle Gay on Wednesday night.

Gay is one of the parents who lost her daughter Joey in the Sandy Hook school shooting.

Joey was born in Columbia and Michelle, her husband bob, and family moved back to Maryland.

But after that shooting she co-founded 'Safe and Sound Schools,' it's a non-profit to get everybody involved in school safety.

"There's so much that can be done and I think that's probably one of the great challenges.

I think in this day and age there is no one person or agency or entity that can do it all.

So the message tonight is about how it's an all hands on deck things; it takes parents, teachers, students, educators, administrators, police, fire all over public safety officials and the community at large really pitching in to make sure everyone is safe from start to finish inside and out," said Gay.

The goal of 'Safe and Sound Schools' is to never let something like Sandy Hook happen again.

Gay says this job will never be done, but can be worked on if everyone works together.
