1990 Institute Newsletter Vol 2 Issue 11, June 3, 2022 asks What will we do for all those little children in Uvalde?

My latest essay for 1990 Institute Vol 2 Issue 11, June 3, 2022 asks What will we do for all those little children in Uvalde?
 "As an essayist, I have written about mass shootings, racially-motivated shootings, school and church shootings, police violence, worrying about my children and elders, and the senseless loss of innocent lives so many times, as recently as two weeks ago. But this time, words falter. I feel all written out." including data from AAPI-Data​
