ANA Responds to Uvalde Texas Elementary School Shooting and Recent Gun Violence: There simply are no words.

On May 24 in Uvalde, Texas, at least 19 children and two teachers lost their lives when a gunman entered an elementary school and opened fire. Two weeks ago, grandparents and family members were gunned down while grocery shopping in Buffalo, New York These are only two of the latest instances of innocent lives lost to senseless gun violence in such a short span of time.

"Our hearts ache tremendously for the loved ones and the communities left behind in the wake of these heinous acts of violence," said American Nurses Association President Ernest J. Grant, PhD, RN, FAAN. "The loss of young lives and the trauma of those who witnessed the carnage and survived will remain with them forever. Their lives will never be the same. There simply are no words. Burying a child is the most unnatural and horrific act that no parent should ever have to experience in their lifetime."  Read more.
