President Trump was quoted saying “This has been going on for too long in our country, too many years, too many decades now…” by USA Today. Just yesterday, reports about a shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas hit the news.
This is the 20th recorded incident in which someone was harmed during a school shooting in 2018 in the United States. As of right now, there were 10 people killed in this particular shooting on Friday, May 19th 2018.
USA Today also lists the 19 other shootings in their report.
The 17 year old gunman plotted out his attack in a journal on his computer ahead of time. He wore a long coat to conceal the long guns that he wore into the school. He is a minor, but has been tried as an adult. There were also explosive devices found on and off campus.
I just ask that we pray for everyone involved and affected by this incident and that we pray for protection over our schools and children. We need to come together over these tragedies and pray for an end to the violence in schools.
