A US mother has shared a confronting image from her daughter’s prospective kindergarten classroom, showing the instructions for a lockdown drill put to the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.

Georgy Cohen, a Boston creative director, shared the image on Twitter this morning. It shows a multi-colored lyric poster outlining the drill protocol:

Lockdown, lockdown
Lock the door

Shut the lights off
Say no more

Go behind the desk and hide
Wait until it’s safe inside

Lockdown, lockdown
It’s all done

Now it’s time to have some fun!

First off I would like to give a shout out to this teacher for trying to make something truly terrifying a little less terrifying. 

I worked in a Kindergarten classroom and I can tell you that singing a song while cleaning up or doing an activity really makes it much easier for the little ones. 

But having said that, this is just fucking heartbreaking. 

Some us remember how upsetting those nuclear bomb drills were in the 50’s and 60’s, well this actually seems much more frightening because there were no real bombs dropping on schools to fan the flames of fear.

    I’m one of those grade schoolers of nuclear bomb drills, and we were told that the chances of it happening were next to none but something we had to be aware of. I grieve the loss of “innocence of youth.” These poor kids have to be aware of so much that we didn’t even give a thought in our formative years. It’s a damned shame.

    When I was in kindergarten all we sang about was the ABCs.

    OT?”Climate change was a challenge of “epochal proportions”, he said, adding that the world needed an energy mix that combated pollution, eliminated poverty and promoted social justice.

    The conference, held behind closed doors at the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, brought together oil executives, investors and Vatican experts who, like the pope, back scientific opinion that climate change is caused by human activity.

    “We know that the challenges facing us are interconnected. If we are to eliminate poverty and hunger … the more than one billion people without electricity today need to gain access to it,” “He said the transition to accessible and clean energy was “a duty that we owe towards millions of our brothers and sisters around the world, poorer countries and generations yet to come”.” Kindergartener$ will be dead by 2100, along with everyone else…

      ‘“Civilization requires energy but energy use must not destroy civilization,”’


      “The TPPF — which has received funding from the Koch brothers and Exxon — then gave the list to the EPA, which took its suggestions.” “Deason, who serves on the board of the TPPF, donated almost $1 million with his father to help elect Donald Trump and other Republican candidates. Deason is a major donor in the Koch political network and lobbied for Pruitt to become Trump’s EPA administrator.

      Deason has remained loyal to Pruitt as the scandals engulfing the administrator grow too numerous to count. “He’s a conservative hero,” Deason told Bloomberg in April, referring to Pruitt. “It would be a huge mistake to do anything other than come out and support him.””
