Active shooter scare

I wanted to bring this article here since it relates to what happened on campus yesterday with the active shooter scare. It is so sickening to me how much we live in fear of a shooting these days. The article discusses the series of events that occurred that led up to the lockdown on campus. During the vigil, that was already taking place to honor the victims of the two mosque shootings in New Zealand, the sound of what people thought were gun shots sent the crowd in a dispersed panic.

Closing US Citizenship and Immigration Services Offices

There are currently over twenty countries that have immigration operations abroad that the Trump administration is planning on shutting down.

Catholic Church: Sex Abuse Scandal

A few days ago Pope Francis held a summit on preventing clergy sex abuse. This was the first time that the Vatican has held a summit on this issue, even though sexual abuse scandals are not new to the Catholic church. This is an extremely sensitive subject because it is so controversial.
