President Biden has ordered the flag to be lowered to half staff for the fifth time since he took office. “There are at least eight families who will never be whole again,” Biden wrote in a statement. “There are children, parents, and spouses who are waiting to hear whether someone they love is ever going to come home. There are union brothers and sisters—good, honest, hardworking people—who are mourning their own.

Governor Gavin Newsom

    • The shooting of two kids
  2. “What the hell is going on in the United States of America?”
  3. “There’s a numbness I imagine some of us are feeling about this because there’s a sameness to this,” he said. “It just feels like this happens over and over and over again. “Rise and repeat, rinse and repeat“.
