Seemingly every day we learn another sorry chapter of total systemic failure in Uvalde. If you have not heard the just-released telephone audio of 10-year-old Khloie Torres coolly pleading for help during the massacre, you must. It’s excruciating, but you must. Khloie survived, but 19 other children and two teachers did not.
Listen. You must. Khloie was more of an “adult” than anyone on the other end of the line. We failed Khloie, who is no longer a child and will naever be again. How a society protects its children is a valid measure of that society’s health. We’re sick. And our unwillingness to take ANY common-sense measures to reduce the number of these slaughters is evidence of our terminal disease.
There are dozens of reasons why Greg Abbott is unfit for office. But the biggest reason is that he is incompetent. In eight years as governor, he has failed…every…single…time in big moments and critical situations. Every one of them.
Listen to the audio. You must.
