Inside the New York Times: What’s It Like to Report From a Shattered Town?

From an Inside the Times column by German Lopez headlined “Reporting From a Shattered Town”:

My colleague Jack Healy is in Uvalde, Texas, reporting on the school shooting that killed 19 children and two adults. He has talked to victims’ families about their grief and anger over police handling of the shooting.

I wanted to give you a sense of how people in Uvalde are processing the violence. So I called Jack.

What did you see when you first got to Uvalde?

Stunned grief.
