In response to the school shooting in Texas

There are no words that help express the profound sadness, hopelessness or anger we’re collectively feeling in the wake of another school shooting. These emotions are especially heavy on this rainy Wednesday afternoon as we learn more details about the tragedy and about the lives who were lost due to this violent act.
