Newspaper Goes Dark After Uvalde’s Tragic Shooting
Since Tuesday, May 24th, people all over the country have had heavy hearts from the tragedy at Robb elementary school in Uvalde, Texas. It has been a roller coaster of emotions for parents all over who can't fathom thinking about something like that happening to their children.
Uvalde, Texas is staying strong during this difficult time and expressing the pain in a powerful way. Something had caught my eye on my Facebook newsfeed that definitely expresses the hurt emotions Uvalde is feeling without words, literally.
Some of you may be familiar with a former news anchor, Kenny Molestina, who used to report for KVIA Abc 7 News. Well, earlier today, May 26th, Ken Molestina an anchor for CBS Dallas-Fort Worth now had shared a photo of himself holding a copy of Uvalde's Leader-News newspaper for May 24, 2022.
Kenny Molestina was not wrong when he said Uvalde Leader-News newspaper's front page needed no words that day.
Apparently, there are other ways of sharing a moment of silence when it involves words and a newspaper.

The front page of the Uvalde Leader-News newspaper is just a vertical rectangular black shape with the date May 24, 2022, in big bold white letters. This clearly hints there are no words for what happened and has continued to happen all over.
First, I must give props to the staff for posting a blank front page on the newspaper the following day. Honestly, I don't think anyone in Uvalde would want flashbacks from that horrific moment just the day before.
This was a bold move on the Uvalde Leader-News newspaper's part and it definitely made a statement.
