Hello River Bend Readers. Audrey here. As I’m sure many of you are feeling, words seem too small in light of the massacre that took place at an elementary school in Uvalde, TX on Tuesday. At the same time, it feels wrong not to pause and reflect. So, I’ll borrow a thought from the brilliant writer, comedian, and activist, Baratunde Thurston:
"When we ban books in schools before we ban guns, we admit we are more afraid of our children learning than we are of them dying."
