After the tragic deaths of a pair of students in Florida, some students are asking questions about what could have been done differently.ABC News asked students and their families about the students’ deaths, their schools and the safety of their families.
We also asked students about the college where they were enrolled, their thoughts on the student body and their hopes for the future.
We wanted to know what they thought about the deaths of Cooper and Williams, and what they have learned from the case.
Some students said they are saddened by the loss of the young women, but the deaths did not make them feel as if the safety at their schools has been compromised.
“It’s very hard to imagine what could’ve been done different, and the fact that these young people could have had their lives taken from them, it hurts,” said Emily M. Kuczynski, a freshman at Franklin Community College in Hopkinsville, Ohio.
“But there’s a lesson that we can learn from it and I’m proud to say that I think I have.”
Kuczynski said she would like to see some sort of change in the way schools are run.
“We have the ability to change, and I think that students are the ones who can do that,” she said.
“It is something that we need to get back to and get rid of that.
I hope that in the future there will be more change, but at the same time I know we’re all just going to have to work through it.”
