And while it is unimaginable, another tragedy involving gun violence isn’t surprising. Mass shootings in America have become all too commonplace — 27 school shootings have taken place so far in 2022 alone. Since the devastating massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012, there have been 3,500 mass shootings, per the Gun Violence Archive. The nightmare at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, a majority Latinx city of 15,000 people occurred only 10 days after the racist attack in a Buffalo, NY supermarket, targeting Black people, which left 10 dead. One victim was a father buying his young son a birthday cake, another was a grandma of eight, and yet another was a church deacon. This incident also takes place just over a week after the Irvine Taiwanese Presbyterian Church (ITPC) shooting in California.
