NPR Storycorps: Tanai Benard and 10 yr. old son

Dezmond Floyd reduced me to a sobbing mess. "You raised a good person", said Dezmond as his mother expressed concern for his willingness to lay down his life for fellow students.


On February 14, 2018, a gunman shot and killed 17 people and injured 17 more at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, making it one of the deadliest school shootings in United States history. This has heightened the national dialogue around school safety, a conversation that one family decided to bring to StoryCorps in Houston.

There, 10-year-old Dezmond Floyd sat down with his mother, Tanai Benard, after experiencing his first active shooter drill with his fifth grade class.

Originally aired March 23, 2018 on NPR’s Morning Edition.
