School shooting survivors fear sending kids to class after Uvalde

Columbine. Virginia Tech. Red Lake. For survivors of the school shootings, the massacre in Uvalde, Texas, is a traumatic reminder of the past – and of the difficult decisions they must make for their own children.

Columbine survivor Missy Mendo was filling out pre-K enrollment paperwork for her 4-year-old daughter, Ellie, when she saw the news Tuesday about the latest school shooting in the country.

“I had to step away from the computer (to) get a breath of fresh air,” said Mendo, whose daughter is starting this fall at a school just down the street from Columbine High. “I felt this huge horrible sense of loss in the world.”
