So many of us have struggled with the news of the Mass Shotting in May in Uvalde, TX. As parents we want to protect our children and we are all looking for ways to do so. No matter what your beliefs, we can all agree that some sort of change needs to occur (even though we likely all have differing thoughts of what that change should look like) when it comes to the safety of our children and our families. Several of us on staff here at Inner Courage Counseling have children and some of us have even lost children. We feel the pain on this topic.
If you are struggling with what has occurred, please reach out for support.
