La sparatoria in una scuola del 24 maggio a Uvalde, in Texas, ha lasciato l’America sconvolta dalle tragiche conseguenze, inclusi numerosi personaggi pubblici. La sparatoria più mortale nella scuola dall’incidente del 2012 a Sandy Hook, nel Connecticut, per OGGI, la tragedia ha causato la morte di 19 bambini e due insegnanti della Robb Elementary School. Il nativo di Uvalde Matthew McConaughey è stato una di queste celebrità che ha parlato in questa occasione che fa riflettere, lanciando un lungo invito all’azione su Twitter. “Questa è un’epidemia che possiamo controllare… da qualunque parte del corridoio possiamo stare… È necessario agire in modo che nessun genitore debba sperimentare ciò che i genitori di Uvalde e gli altri prima di loro hanno subito”, ha scritto McConaughey . La sua collega texana Selena Gomez twittato la sua stessa frustrazione, scrivendo: “Coloro che sono al potere devono smettere di parlare a parole e cambiare effettivamente le leggi per prevenire queste sparatorie in futuro”.

Meghan Markle also joined in mourning this tragedy, approaching it in a unique way. 

Meghan Markle personally helped survivors of the Uvalde shooting

Meghan Markle paid a personal visit to the memorial for victims of the Uvalde, Texas school shooting. Dressed incognito in a baseball cap, white tee and jeans, the Duchess of Sussex was spotted laying down a bouquet of white roses. Meghan also walked around reading victims' names, which were written on white wooden crosses adorned with blue hearts. 

That's not all the duchess contributed, however. According to BuzzFeed News, Meghan also visited a community center's blood drive dedicated to helping the shooting's survivors. Donating two crates of food, beverages, and desserts, Meghan also chatted up blood drive volunteers, who had no idea they were in the company of royalty. "She just was carrying on a conversation like her and I knew each other for years," volunteer Gloria Contreras told the outlet. "We were talking about Texas and Uvalde and how it is to be in a small town and how everybody is so kind and warm-hearted and know we know each other and stuff and how the faith is deep-rooted."

As her representative confirmed, Meghan was in Uvalde "in a personal capacity as a mother" to support "a community experiencing unimaginable grief." As one Twitter user also pointed out, the duchess was a woman of action in this instance, noting, "Meghan Markle didn't just send 'thoughts & prayers.' She got on a plane, flew thousands of miles, & volunteered to help a hurting community."
