One of the trademarks of NextDraft is that the meaning of the headlines are often not clear until you’ve read the blurb. This headline was likely an exception. If you hear that a big story in America is simply titled Again, there’s a decent chance you know there’s been another school shooting. There has been an average of one a week so far this year. Here are the details on this one: The school: Santa Fe High School outside of Houston. The dead: At least ten, including students and teachers. The shooter: A 17 year-old student in custody. Here’s the latest from CNN. A student named Paige summarized her reality when she was asked by a reporter from a local TV station if she was surprised a shooting happened at her school. “No … it’s been happening everywhere. I always felt like eventually it was going to happen here too.”

+ President Trump addressed the issue: “To the students, families, teachers and personnel at Santa Fe High School – we are with you in this tragic hour, and we will be with you forever…” (So, seemingly, will this American scourge.)
