Manager A.J. Hinch said Tuesday: "We offer support and our intention with these shirts on how to keep the conversation alive on how to hopefully avoid the next one".

In contrast to numerous students who experienced the tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, Divin dismissed the idea of organizing a walkout to inspire change. So will Texas Gun Sense, which promotes common-sense reforms to prevent violence.

The Wednesday discussion, for example, will include legislative leaders and the lieutenant governor, judges, the commissioner of the Texas Education Agency, mental health experts, the director of the Texas School Safety Center at Texas State University and members of groups advocating for and against increased gun regulation.

Pagourtzis, who business records show owns North American Marine Inc., a ship fix and industrial cleaning company in Houston, north of Santa Fe, told the Journal he struggled to get where he is today.

Gov. Abbott on Tuesday kicked off the first of three roundtable discussions on school security, gun safety and the accounts of victims, including those from Santa Fe. Several top Republicans have called for the state to "harden" school campuses against future attacks and arm more teachers.

"The response by the Republican majority will be overwhelmingly focused on how do we make schools safer via architecture, via more armed patrols, via metal detectors and the like", he said. Why would her school be spared when so many others have not?

The Santa Fe Highway 6 Ministerial Alliance says it will host "A Night of Hope and Healing" at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Santa Fe Junior High School football stadium.

In a phone interview over the weekend with Greece's Antenna TV, Antonios Pagourtzis (puh-GOR'-cheez) said he wished he could have stopped the killing Friday at Santa Fe High School.

His voice cracked as he described how he told police to let him inside the school so his son, Dimitrios Pagourtzis, could kill him instead. They included measures to buy back guns, improve gun safety education and create a lethal violence protective order to stop a potentially unsafe person from buying or possessing a firearm.

"He never got into a fight with anyone".

A Texas school district says it will be holding a graduation ceremony as planned for the high school where 10 people were killed during a deadly shooting last week. On Tuesday, Texas student activists placed an open letter to Governor Greg Abbott in the Houston Chronicle, accusing him of not doing enough to protect them.

The 17-year-old who killed 10 people last week at his high school in Santa Fe, Texas, was too young to buy a gun, but he didn't have to look far to find one. But Abbott's call to do "more than just pray" for the victims comes in a state that has fully embraced its gun culture and resisted previous attempts to scale it back.

He tweeted that it was time to "get this out of the way" and stated that the shooting could not have been prevented by a gun ban or reform because the suspect "was carrying an illegal firearm and illegal explosives".
