In Massachusetts, a class of five-year-olds are learning this rhyme - set to the lullaby "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" - so they know what to do during a school shooting.

Unfortunately, Cohen is not the first person to draw attention to the issue of very young children "playing" out their shooting drills.

What are your thoughts on this poem hanging inside of a kindergarten classroom?

Cohen wrote that her child was "excited" by the "game to see if you can stay quiet for "one whole minute". "A part of me is glad they showed her, and another part of me is just sick that it had to happen".

Her post has since been shared more than 46,000 times on Twitter and has drawn comments and criticisms from around the world. The statement said schools have a responsibility to help students and staff prepare in case of an emergency.

Georgy Cohen, from Somerville in MA, took to Twitter on Wednesday to share an image of the five-lined recital that prepped young pupils for potential shootings. "It's all done / Now it's time to have some fun".

Sources told the outlet that ZTE signed a US "agreement in principle" over the weekend, but had not yet signed an amended version. It has enjoyed the backing of Chinese President Xi Jinping, who has been negotiating with Trump over a broader trade agreement.

While touring a kindergarten in Somerville on Wednesday to get a sense of what to expect when her 5-year-old daughter starts school in the fall, Georgy Cohen took stock of the items one might typically find in a classroom for young kids.

"These are the things they unfortunately have to do", Cohen said.

Others on social media, said the poster left them feeling said how sad.

In a joint statement to The Post, Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone and Somerville Public Schools Superintendent Mary Skipper said the poster reflects the reality for students across the country. Instead, she is upset that the widespread instances of gun violence plaguing American educational institutions have made such nursery rhymes a mandatory in childhood classrooms.

But Cohen told the Globe that she understands the need to teach children about school safety and security.

"To be shocked by it is important", she told The Globe. And in place of the usual self-promotion following a tweet going viral, the mom simply requested that people call their congressional representatives to advocate for gun reform or support organizations like Everytown and Sandy Hook Promise.
