“Breaks my heart hearing this news, no parent should ever have to lose their child. Praying for the families of those kids and the teacher…this is devastating.”
To those who are not aware, this spoken off massacre at Robb Elementary School in the heavily Latino town of Uvalde was the deadliest shooting at a US grade school since a gunman killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, almost a decade ago. Salvador Ramos, who killed his own grandmother before executing this atrocious crime, was wearing body armour, crashed his car outside the school before going inside, Sgt. Erick Estrada of the Texas Department of Public Safety told CNN. He was reportedly armed with a handgun, an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle, and high-capacity ammunition magazines.

Given that the US is extensively bleeding from such instances, be it at the grocery store, or now in an elementary school, the reason for such incidents taking place so often is bound to be revealed sooner rather than later.
Prayers go out to all families who have lost their loved ones. May their soul rest in peace, while their family could get full justice and answer for such a horrendous act.
