The 21 victims of the Uvalde school shooting
On May 24th, 19 students included fashionistas and artists, basketball and softball players, dancers and TikTok makers. The two educators were celebrated veterans who together had taught four decades of local children.
One boy brewed his grandparents a pot of coffee every morning. One girl wanted to be a marine biologist. One teacher had been married for 24 years to her high school sweetheart.
As summer vacation approached, their lives were abruptly cut short Tuesday by a gunman at Robb Elementary School in the mostly Latino town of Uvalde.

There were seven stations with three names of the victims around the parking lot. There was also a alphabet with an excersise next to it. The PAX were instructed to pick one of the names and perform the excercise next to each letter of the victims first name. Once the name was finished, move on to the next station and do the same thing. The goal was to make three trips around the lot, but time only allowed one.

PRAYER FOR THE VICTIMS OF VIOLENCE
Loving God, you are the author and sustainer of our lives. You know the anguish of the sorrowful, you are attentive to the prayers of the brokenhearted. Hear your people who cry out to you in their need; strengthen their hope in your lasting goodness.
We pray today for those who have died because of violence, of terrorism. Draw them to yourself; let your face shine upon them. May they be greeted with choirs of angels and experience your eternal peace and joy.
Be near to all those who have been touched by violence: those who have been hurt, lost their loved ones or lost their sense of security. Be for them a steady comfort and safe resting place.
Soften the hearts and steady of the minds of those who would do violence to others. May hate be replaced with love, violence with peace and darkness with your light.
Prayers also for Fireballs family.
Always a pleasure to lead.
