The archbishop of San Antonio, Gustavo Garcia-Siller, comforts families outside the Civic Center following a deadly school shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, Tuesday, May 24, 2022.

Live call-in discussion: Twenty-one people, including 19 children, are dead after a school shooting in Uvalde, Texas. This comes less than two weeks after a gunman killed 10 Black people in a supermarket in Buffalo, New York. And today, May 25, 2022, is the two-year anniversary of George Floyd's murder.

It's all a lot, all at once. We want to hear how you're doing.

Our guests are:

  • Dr. John Koutras, a general adult and child psychiatrist and clinical assistant professor at UVM's Larner College of Medicine
  • Jane Lindholm, host of But Why: A Podcast for Curious Kids, a show that has helped have difficult conversations with kids about violence
