Texas school shooting

Since 1999, the cycle of gun violence in schools


At least 185 children, teachers and other people have lost their lives in school shootings
since the Columbine High School massacre in 1999, according to a database tracking
gun violence at K-12 campuses by The Washington Post. ¶ Since that horrific day in
Littleton, Colo., there have been over 300 shootings during school hours — including
nearly 80 that resulted in at least one death. ¶ Gunfire has rang out in classrooms,
schoolyards, bathrooms and parking lots. The brutality of these shootings doesn’t cease
when the bullets stop. There are more than 311,000 children who have now witnessed
gun violence in a place meant to be safe. ¶ For many, the trauma persists. ¶ Over 23
years, the photographs that follow when first responders rush to a massacre begin to
look eerily similar. The shock plastered on yet another grief-stricken face. Children
escorted from their school by hand. Tears and hugs at another candlelight vigil. The
repetition of these frames speaks to the devastation of this cycle of violence. They
document utter tragedy thrust upon yet another group of children. ¶ These are images
from some of the deadliest shootings in recent years.

It is maddening and heartbreaking that our country is
so deeply mired in the past that we are incapable of
regulating weapons whose ferocity our Founders
couldn’t have imagined. The fight for sane gun laws is,
first, about the innocent lives extinguished by the failure
of our politics. But it is also about moving, at last, into a
more humane future.

The situation in the country’s
east marks a shift from an earlier
stage of the war, when staunch
Ukrainian defenses forced a
broad Russian retreat in Kyiv and
other areas, increasing confi-
dence among Ukrainians and
their Western backers about the
prospects of all-out victory over a
poorly organized and equipped
Russian force.

Having now regrouped, Rus-
sian troops are making incre-
mental but steady progress in
their campaign in the east and
are regularly employing heavy
flamethrowers and long-range
artillery that Ukrainian forces
lack, leaving Kyiv on the back
foot. Though Ukrainian resis-
tance has made the fight a slog for
Russian forces, Moscow is inch-
ing closer to encircling Ukraine’s
biggest strongholds in the Don-
bas region, while fighting on ter-
ritory contiguous to Russia with
easier supply lines.

In a video address early Satur-
day, Ukrainian President Volod-
ymyr Zelensky said the situation
on the battlefield in Donbas was
“very difficult,” with Russian forc-
es attacking Ukrainian positions
with “maximum artillery and
maximum reserves.”

“We are defending our land
insofar as the defense resources
we have today will allow. We’re
doing everything we can to
strengthen them — and we will
strengthen them,” Zelensky said.
“If the occupiers think Severodo-

they are mistaken. Donbas will be

For weeks, Zelensky and other
top Ukrainian officials have been
asking the United States to pro-
vide multiple launch rocket sys-

Kyiv the ability to strike targets
from much farther away and a
better chance of resisting the
assault in the east.

U.S. officials and congressional
staffers told The Post on Friday
that the administration is prepar-

Norm Macdonald new ‘Top Gun’
had one last secret

“Top Gun: Maverick” has been described as
many things in its mostly rave reviews:
Thrilling. Slick. Visceral. That rare sequel that
improves on the original at every hairpin

The iconic 1986 “Top Gun” played like a
parody of Reagan-era macho posturing. What
makes “Maverick” such a bracing gust of
cinematic pleasure is the fact that this time,
all the shiny hardware, fist-bumping action,
whooshing sound effects and bros-forever
emotional beats are kept afloat so effortlessly.

Effortlessness — the art of appearing
nonchalant even when you’re working your
hardest — might have been the cardinal
virtue of cinema’s Golden Age, when stars like
Cary Grant, Grace Kelly and Sidney Poitier
personified its most elegant, unselfconscious
values. But the term can apply just as aptly to
movies themselves — when “motion” and
“picture” converge on a sublime plane all
their own, with sound, image, actor and
emotion fusing to create an experience so
organic that it feels as if it arrived on screen
fully formed. A movie is effortless when it just
feels right — or, conversely, feels just right.

Like the original, “Maverick” is a big,
boisterous summer blockbuster, made for
spectacle and sensation rather than subtlety.
But it achieves all those aims with off-handed
confidence that’s as disarming as it is star-
tling, arriving at a time when showing your
work has become a badge of honor, on screen

You are attractive
and friendly. You have

important decisions today.
The New Moon is in Gemini.

(MARCH 21-APRIL 19).
Today’s New Moon is the best
day all year to think about how
you can improve your daily
communications. For example,
do you really listen to others?
Or are you just waiting for your
turn to speak? Communication
is a two-way street.

DUSTIN Focus on moneymaking ideas

(MAY 21-JUNE 20).
Today the only New Moon in
your sign all year is taking
place, which makes this the
perfect day to take a realistic
look in the mirror to see
how you can improve the
impression you create on
your world.

(JUNE 21-JULY 22).
The New Moon each month is
a chance to make resolutions.
Today’s New Moon encourages
you to think about your
spiritual world and your
religious values. What do you
think about in the dark at

(JULY 23-AUG. 22).
You are a social person. You
like one-on-one encounters
with others -- a fun coffee
get-together or an entertaining
evening out. Today’s New
Moon is the perfect day to
think about your relations with

(AUG. 23-SEPT. 22).
This is the perfect day to
think about your life direction,
because the New Moon is
taking place at the top of your
chart. Are you headed where
you want to go? Where do
you want to be five years from
(SEPT. 23-OCT. 22).
Today’s New Moon is your
chance to think about what
adventures might enrich your
life in an exciting way. Should
you take a trip and travel? Is
there something you want to
learn? Do you want to explore
opportunities in medicine, the
law or publishing?

(OCT. 23-NOV. 21).
Make some time today to
focus on those red-tape
details that are so easy to
ignore. Today’s New Moon
is the perfect day to roll up
your sleeves and focus on
inheritances, wills, taxes, debt
and shared property.

(NOV. 22-DEC. 21).
Today the only New Moon
opposite your sign all year is
taking place, which means it’s
a great opportunity for you to
think about how to improve
your closest relationships.
We’re talking close friends,
partners and spouses.

(DEC. 22-JAN. 19).
Make the most of this lovely
New Moon and ask yourself
what you could do to get better
organized in general. How
can you get better organized
at work as well as in your
everyday world?

(JAN. 20-FEB. 18).
It’s important to have a good
balance between play and
work in our lives. Do you feel
you have this kind of balance?
Do you reward yourself with
social outings and contact
with others? What about fun
activities with your kids?

(FEB. 19-MARCH 20).
What can you do to improve
where you live, as well as
improve relations with family
or the people where you live?
Today’s New Moon is the best
day all year to think about this.
Even a tiny improvement will
make your life easier.
