The six dead at The Covenant School and their families, not the transgender shooter, are the victims of this school shooting in Nashville.I learned during a break at work on Monday about the school shooting at The Covenant School in Nashville—three 9-year-olds and three school staff members dead as a result.
I am saddened by the loss of life and horrified by the carnage one can bring upon children. It is simply evil.
I typically don't use the names of shooters when I write about mass shootings, but I have to make a brief exception for this article.
This school shooting represents the first perpetrated by a woman. The shooter, Audrey Hale, 28, recently identified as a transgender man and adopted the name 'Aiden."
News articles have described Hale as "emotionally disturbed," which I have no doubt that is true.
The Daily Mail portrayed Hale as a victim because her Christian parents rejected her.
