Uvalde, the small Texas town few of us had heard of before last week, is going through its darkest time. The murders of 19 students and two teachers rattled not only the United States, but the world.

Time and again we have watched as mass shooting after mass shooting has ripped through the heart of America, robbing the land of the free of the innocence these quiet towns once knew.
