Evil struck our country again yesterday when an 18-year-old gunman named Salvador Ramos opened fire on children and teachers Tuesday at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. 21 people were killed. The emotional pain and heartache will remain long after today. Families of the victims may not be able to return to work for months, maybe never. Some families don't have the means for the proper burial of their loved ones. The families of the victims of this unfathomable crime, need us. They need our help, support and money.
