The eight-year-old Faris Nunn, when asked about her reaction to the gunfire, said that she wasn’t surprised and had seen it before. She added, “It was my second shooting. So I was kind of prepared … because I always am expecting something to happen.”

WUSA9 journalist Jess Arnold tweeted the clip which has now been watched a million times, and wrote, “Sober reminder of what far too many kids in DC face daily.” He added, “When I asked this 8-year-old girl – who was with her family at last night’s game – how she felt when they heard shots, she said, ‘It was my second shooting, so I was kind of prepared.’ This should not be normal.”

Further, Arnold’s opinion was seconded by the people that children should not go through this level of violence where they accept it as normal.

Twitterati also reacted to the post and shared their views on how wrong it is that Faris Nunn felt like it was normal.
