Image of poster with lockdown song in MA kindergarten goes viral

However, while the lockdown song may be a horrifying reminder of the number of recent school shootings, it also needs to be remembered that up until a massive fire in 1958 at Our Lady of the Angels school in Chicago that killed 92 children, parents didn't feel the need for fire drills at schools.

Geogy Cohen added that her child had been practising live shooter drills at pre-kindergarten classes.

She said it, "this should not be hanging in my soon-to-be-kindergartener's [sic] classroom". Her post has been retweeted almost 18,000 times and received almost 40,000 likes and 1,800 comments.

Georgy Cohen, from Somerville in MA, took to Twitter on Wednesday to share an image of the five-lined recital that prepped young pupils for potential shootings. Now it's time to have some fun!'

The mother of a five-year-old girl in the US shared a picture of a rhyme that teaches toddlers how to prepare for a mass shooting.

In eye of storm, scant news of Trump summit in North Korea
But last month, Trump abruptly cancelled the Singapore summit, citing the "tremendous anger and open hostility" by Pyongyang . It is unclear, however, under what terms North Korea would agree to in an effort to reduce its nuclear arsenal.

Georgy Cohen, a Boston creative director, shared the image on Twitter this morning. She said she and her classmates were huddled in a corner, scared they were going to die.

Plenty of people chimed in on social media, decrying the harsh reality encapsulated by the poster. Nine out of 10 public schools have students and teachers practicing lockdown drills, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. Instead, she is upset that the widespread instances of gun violence plaguing American educational institutions have made such nursery rhymes a mandatory in childhood classrooms. "To see that absurdity and horror and have that sick feeling in your stomach is important".

There have been 23 shootings in U.S. schools this year alone which have resulted in one or more deaths. "Stay outraged. And if it gets somebody to do something - to give money to an organisation or to call their representatives ... then great, I think that that's important".

Officials went on to say that lockdowns are jarring and students know how unnatural the experience is, the Post said.

United States in the past few months have witnessed major school massacres, including the February 14 shootout at a high school in Florida that killed 17 people prompting widespread calls to reform gun laws.
