“My heart aches with Miller Valley, grieving for the five lives ripped away by gun violence and for the never-ending effects on their family, friends, and community. Workplaces, schools, houses of worship, malls, movie theaters: these are all places that we should feel safe going to without fear of being shot. We should never accept or resign ourselves to the devastation of gun violence — this is not the way to be in America. We can prevent tragedies like yesterday from happening by knowing the signs of potential violence and saying something to get help before someone picks up a gun to harm others or themselves.”
