As I watched the mass shooting unfold at the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, TX,  a panic set in.  I could see that no one was  going inside and that meant that there was no enforcement entry to the classroom, and that meant that with each minute, another child's life was in danger.  One thing I can't tell you is why the Uvalde police Chief waited.  Everyone in law enforcement is trained to go toward a shooter, not to stand around.  The possibility of getting shot is part of being an oath sworn officer of the peace. I speak from experience as I have done dozens of these high-risk entries in my career.  Watching the press briefing for the mass shooting at Saint Francis Hospital and the clear and concise timeline given by the Tulsa Police Chief drew such a stark comparison between the two mass shootings.  Not just because in Tulsa, the response to go into the hospital and get the gunman was without hesitation, but because of the amount of information given to the public less than 24 hours after the episode.  It's been 9 days since Uvalde and we still don't have all of the details.  Last week, FBI director Christopher Wray, during a Congressional hearing, warned that so called "lone wolf shooters" carrying out an attack for whatever reason are perhaps the most, active imminent threat the nation faces currently.  If the past 2 weeks is any indication, that warning is beyond urgent

President Biden is set to meet with Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell this afternoon to discuss rising inflation rates and the general state of the global economy. The meeting comes as Biden faces low approval ratings and sky-high inflation. The White House plans to spend June “making a concerted effort to communicate on our accomplishments to date on the economy” and how they plan to tackle inflation, according to a White House official. The first step in that strategy was an op-ed from the president himself in this morning’s Wall Street Journal, in which Biden laid much of the responsibility for the current inflation crisis at the feet of the Fed.

The White House is today marking one million dead from COVID-19.  Official Johns Hopkins numbers are just shy of that mark.  One million is a staggering number.  It is equal to every person living in San Jose, CA – the 10th largest city in the US – disappearing.  COVID-19 was the third leading cause of death in the US in 2021, following heart disease and cancer according to new data from the CDC.  The number of Americans lost to COVID dwarfs the number who have died from the flu.  But there are so many lives that have been impacted.  As we reach this milestone we hear from those who have been most impacted.
