Statement on Uvalde, Texas

by | May 25, 2022

For Immediate Release

Once again we as a nation face the news of the senseless mass shooting of children, and once again this tragedy was carried out by a young man who was not much more than a child himself.

This is not the time for posturing.  This is not the time for attacks or rebuttals from either side of the political aisle.  This is a day of grief and mourning.  We grieve for the nineteen children who lost their lives.  We grieve for their parents who will never see their little ones grow into adulthood.  We grieve for the two teachers who were killed and for their loved ones.  We mourn the loss of innocence for the students, for their childhood will be forever altered.

Our heartfelt prayers go out to the students and staff of Robb Elementary School, as well as the entire community of Uvalde.  May God bless you and keep you in this time of mourning.
