""I have a 2-year-old daughter. Maybe I'll be asking this question every time my daughter goes into a grade, or a different school: "How is she going to get out of the building when someone comes through that door?" It's scary. And we're becoming immune to that fear. When I was 16 or 17, I worked at a grocery store. Around 7:30 or 8 o'clock, it got quiet. It was just me and another girl, and she was busy. A man came up to the window and pointed a gun at me and said, "Give me the money in the register." I just did what he wanted me to do. People face worse than that. But I'll never forget that feeling. I'll never forget looking down the barrel of a gun."

This #nytweekender, we'll be sharing more of the photographer @chadbatka's portraits from this ongoing series, #ofthepeople2016." By nytimes on Instagram.
