Chicago Invite 1000 Students and Families To Florida Concert To Honor Alex Schachter

Chicago have invited 1000 students, their families and school staff to their West Palm Beach concert on July 20 to honor Alex Schachter, one of the first victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas massacre in Parkland, Florida.

Chicago was Alex’s favourite band and their classic ’24 or 6 to 4’ was his favourite song. Chicago dedicated the song to Alex at the concert.

Following the Parkland massacre Alex’s father Max Schachter quit his job to dedicate his life to the foundation he created ‘Safe Schools For Alex’.

“No child has died in a school fire since 1958 due to our fire codes”, Max Schachter said in a statement. “After 9/11, we hardened our airports and our cockpits. After the Oklahoma City bombing, we hardened our federal buildings. Safe Schools for Alex is an initiative to develop school safety best practices”.

Max intends to use his national school safety best practices to assist all school districts in hardening their schools to make sure that all children and teachers are as safe and protected as our airports and federal buildings.
