Benje Choucroun, A kid reporter that attends Marin Country Day School made news on Wednesday when he stepped up to the mic to ask White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders a powerful question on how to keep kids like him and and kids across America safe at their own school. Benje was there on behalf of Time for Kids to attend the White House Sports and Fitness Day.
He asked, "At my school, we recently had a lockdown drill. One thing that affects my and other students' mental health is the worry about we or our friends could get shot at school. Specifically, could you tell me what the administration has done or will do to prevent these senseless tragedies?" This took many people in the room by surprise, and even prompted Sanders to choke up while giving an answer to Benje.
