At 10 a.m., this morning, our nation was subject to another school shooting. 10 people were reported dead and more injured at Santa Fe High School in Santa Fe, Texas.

Police are lining the school sidewalks and have the alleged shooter in custody.

Along with the shooting, police found multiple explosive devices on campus. Police are continuing their search to secure the campus and, of course, the students. They have yet to release any information on the shooter or motive for the shooting.

Decatur teacher Amanda Lockhart’s brother teaches in the same school district as the shooting. Administrator Wesley Hatfield was the first to tell her it happened, and she immediately checked the news and called her brother.

Thankfully, he’s okay, she said, but he knows some teachers at Santa Fe High School and is scared for them.

“It’s unfortunately, simultaneously tragic and familiar,” Hatfield said.

The nation looked to President Donald Trump for guidance on this issue, causing the White House to release a statement declaring that the Trump administration promises action.

“My administration is determined to do everything in our power to protect our students, secure our schools and do everything we can to keep weapons out of the hands of those who pose a threat to themselves and to others,” Trump said.

Trump also mentioned that the nation must work together in order to provide safety and security for the country’s students.

The recent shooting that took place at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland Florida sparked a nationwide protest consisting of nationwide school walkouts followed by the national “March for Our Lives.”

According to CNN, there has been an average of one school shooting per week in the year of 2018.

Now people, yet again, are left to ask themselves if the United States government will take action on this pressing issue.
