Editor’s note: By the definition that the FBI uses to determine it, this shooting is technically a mass shooting. And our hearts break for the victims, their families and our community for getting caught up in this seemingly wholly American tradition of loved ones taken too soon by gun violence. We are sorry for your loss. We are sorry for all of our loss. 

SOMERS ⏤ An update from the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department has raised the number of shooting victims at Somers House to six, and possibly seven.

Listen to this episode to listen to me explore that role of kindness in his life, and now my life.  — This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/mind-of-daniel-thompson/support
