A Message from President Sister Janet Eisner, SNDdeN Concerning the School Shooting in Texas and Other Recent Attacks

Dear Members of the Emmanuel College Community,

Late yesterday afternoon, we began receiving shocking reports about the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, where, we now know, 19 schoolchildren and two adults were killed.

Today, we continue to reel from the magnitude of this tragedy. It joins earlier incidents in Buffalo and southern California to make May the worst month in recent memory for armed, hate-driven attacks on innocent and defenseless people – including, now, young children.

As a Catholic college dedicated to the pursuit of truth, Emmanuel is committed to examining the factors that make such shootings so disturbingly commonplace in contemporary American society. Along with efforts to understand – to the extent that these acts can be comprehended at all – it is vital that we as a community continue to live our values fully, and serve as a source of positive change and of healing for our fractured culture.

We continue to pray for those lost, and for their devastated loved ones. May Emmanuel, our God with us, draw close to them in their sorrow.

Sister Janet Eisner, SNDdeN
President
