School shooting survivors fear sending children to class after Uvalde

Columbine. Virginia Tech. Red Lake. For the survivors of the school shooting, the massacre in Uvalde, Texas is a traumatic reminder of the past and the difficult decisions they must make for their own children.

Columbine survivor Missy Mendo was filling out pre-K registration paperwork for her 4-year-old daughter, Ellie, when she saw the news Tuesday about the nation’s latest school shooting.

“I had to step away from the computer (to) get a breath of fresh air,” said Mendo, whose daughter starts this fall at a school just down the street from Columbine High. “I felt this huge sense of horrendous loss in the world.”
