esquire.com – PHILADELPHIA—Sarah Clements is a smiling, red-haired young woman, a junior at Georgetown, and she’s working the press tent here at the Democratic National Convention. On the morning of December 12, 2012, Sarah was in her high school physics class. Her mother, Abbey, was at her job teaching second grade at the same elementary school to which Sarah had gone. It was called Sandy Hook. It was in Newtown, Connecticut. Not long after physics class began, the high school went into lockdown. Sarah wasn’t concerned. Lockdown drills had become a regular part of the school routine after the Columbine massacre. However, this one seemed a little longer than usual.
