How many more will we lose?

Tuesday morning, a 16-year-old student shot and killed another 16-year-old student before classes began at Butler High School. I followed the media reports via Twitter while planning for the day at Garinger High, 12 miles down the road from Butler. It’s hard to express the weight of dread that comes with that proximity.
