Show Notes

it has been two months since the horrific mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. Tragedies like Uvalde are always a chance to revisit what we mean by “safety,” and where mental health fits in to that. And lest we forget, the worst of the COVID pandemic may be over for most kids, but that can't erase the more than 10.5 million children worldwide who have lost one or both parents during the coronavirus pandemic. In this episode we explore the persisting effects on Texas kids of these two recent disasters. The first segment is an interview with Texas Tribune's Brian Lopez about the aftemath of the UValde shooting. In the second segment we hear from Rosie Guzman and Sandy Salinas, both with Communities in Schools of Laredo, a Hogg Foundation grant partner.
