“Nineteen children were killed in a mass shooting in Texas. I have barely escaped the pandemonium of the pediatric emergency department to scarf down a bowl of pasta when I hear the announcement on the breakroom TV. My stomach drops. Again? How is it possible?
I step back into the ED and immediately am called over by an agitated mother whose infant came in with respiratory distress 30 minutes earlier. Any moment they would be transferred to the intensive care unit – I hurry over, worried a crisis with her infant awaits me.
She wants to talk about the shooting. In despair, she asks how she can send her other child to kindergarten the next day.”
Marina Mai is a medical student.
She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “Senators are killing children by failing to enact gun control laws.”
