In the past year, there has been many cases of school shootings or stabbings at high schools and colleges.

Prom is super stressful, especially if you're like me and this year's prom will be your first one to ever go to. First off, you have to find a date or you'll be going with a group of friends (or alone, however you roll). Next you need to (if female) get a dress or (if male) a nice suit. It's a great...
