    GV a room piled high with sandbags against the walls; nuns putting gas masks on kids; slight pan to left; nun in FG bending down to tie mask on a child. It takes them some time to get the masks fastened. CU Same; one little boy with mask on stares toward camera; a nun finishes putting gas mask on the next kid; then steps away; leaving a row of children wearing gas masks along with their regular clothing.
