In Texas, hundreds of protesters marched through the streets of Uvalde on Sunday, braving triple-digit temperatures to demand answers over the May 24 massacre at Robb Elementary School that left 19 children and two teachers dead. Joining the protests was Alysandra Garcia, whose mother Irma was one of the teachers killed in the attack.
Alysandra Garcia: “She was kind and loving. She had a way with words. She was the backbone to our family, and we will never be the same. As sad as it is, a part of me knew my mother would give her life to save her students.”
Alysandra Garcia’s father Joe died of a heart attack two days after his wife Irma was killed by the Uvalde shooter.
