Nashville Doctors Speak Out About Shooting at Covenant School

After the shooting at the Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee, two physicians with close ties to the school have spoken out about their frustrations and desire for action on gun violence.

Pediatric surgeon Dr. Britney Grayson, who had left the school just minutes before the shooting, and Dr. Ryan Mire, president of the American College of Physicians, who practices primary care just 10 minutes away from the school where six people, including three children, were killed.

Grayson expressed her thoughts on Facebook, sharing her guilt for being safe and not being able to help those affected by the tragedy. She was asked to speak to students about her work in Kenya and left the school only 20 minutes before the shooting occurred, leaving her with a sense of helplessness and frustration.
