PARKLAND, Fla. (AP) — It's an image that has become emblematic of the Parkland school massacre: Two terrified mothers were photographed in an embrace outside the high school in Florida where 17 people were killed a year ago.

The women's children, it turned out, were safe. But the bond between Cathi Rush and Mechelle Boyle in that photo didn't survive.

They have found themselves at odds — like the nation itself — over gun control.

On the first anniversary of the tragedy, one of them refused to be interviewed with the other.

Rush says the community is bitterly divided between those who want to turn schools into "fortresses" and those who want to crack down on guns.
