Shooting at Texas' Santa Fe High School

[Content Note: Gun violence; death.]

A school shooting in Sante Fe, Texas, has ended with the suspected shooter being taken into custody. With the usual caution about early details sometimes being wrong, CNN is reporting that "at least eight people have died."

I'm so angry and so sad that another person has done this horrible thing again.
