A school shooting in Boston happens involving a teacher and a student as victims and it is crickets on here. Got it.

I thought silence was violence or something like that.

From the Boston Teachers Union:

Our thoughts are with both Khelmon Bethel, BTU educator at TechBoston, as well as the TechBoston student who were injured last night by gunfire. This act of violence is unacceptable, and when we learned of the incident yesterday, we joined the Mayor and Superintendent to show support for the staff and school community last night and this morning. We are still learning the details of the incident, but know that both Khelmon and the student are both in stable condition and expected to make a full recovery.

Everyone deserves to feel safe at school or at school-sponsored events. We are working with the district to ensure that the students, families and staff at TechBoston have supportive resources to navigate this awful situation and that there is a solid a plan to address safety both at the school and in the larger community moving forward.

“Anytime a bunch of kids getting on a school bus to go cheer on their high school basketball team gets subject to completely inexplicable, unacceptable wrath and violence, by at this point two unknown people, what else would you call it? That’s terror, in my mind.”
