In June 2016, the CSC asked our partners at Tomorrow's Rainbow to help share information on how to talk to children about horrific events like the one that had just happened at The Pulse, in Orlando. Sadly, this information is most relevant once again, following the shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14.
