After asking Parkland, Florida mass shooting survivors how they’re handling the aftermath of last week’s shooting, CNN host Jake Tapper became emotional when they described the trauma they experienced.
“We’re all feeling very traumatized,” Sawyer Garrity told the host after he inquired about how she and her classmates are handling the ordeal. She described the night prior, when she and her friends and fellow interviewees woke up from nightmares about being killed by a gunman.
“Children shouldn’t be having these thoughts,” Garrity said. “Children shouldn’t be scared of these things. It’s not right.”
“You’re right,” Tapper said quietly in response. “You shouldn’t.”
He later noted that when watching video from President Donald Trump’s listening session for mass shooting survivors and their families, the three girls were holding each others’ hands.
“You were there for each other and that was a very beautiful thing,” he said, his voice cracking. “Don’t stop being there for each other.”

UK braced for key court ruling on parliament suspension
Britain's Supreme Court will rule on Tuesday whether Prime Minister Boris Johnson acted unlawfully in suspending parliament, in a seismic case that could have profound implications for Brexit and the country's constitutional foundations.
If the verdict goes against Johnson, it could see parliament rapidly reassemble and would inevitably trigger questions about his position, having unlawfully advised Queen Elizabeth II to suspend parliament.
It would be the latest hammer blow to his plans for taking Britain out of the European Union on October 31, and pile huge pressure on his minority government.
Seoul confirms 4th swine fever case — and asks North Korea for cooperation
South Korea confirmed its fourth case of African swine fever on Tuesday, as Pyongyang was yet to respond to Seoul's request to make joint efforts to tackle the deadly animal disease.
The latest case was confirmed at a farm in Paju, a city near the inter-Korean border where the nation's first case was recorded, according to Seoul's agriculture ministry.
South Korea has culled around 15,000 pigs since the first case was reported on Sept 17.
"We have carried out an immediate culling and are proceeding with an epidemiological investigation," the ministry said in a statement, adding that some 2,300 pigs were being raised at the affected farm.
Not just Franco: Settling on a final resting place for deceased controversial leaders presents challenges
Settling on a final resting place for deceased controversial leaders, such as Spain's dictator Francisco Franco whose remains the government wants moved from a state mausoleum, has been troublesome for many countries.
Ahead of a court ruling on Franco's case Tuesday, here are some examples:
- Soviet Union: Joseph Stalin -
On his death in 1953, Stalin was buried in the Moscow mausoleum of his predecessor, Vladimir Lenin.
Eight years later a process of "de-Stalinisation" was launched to dismantle the dictator's personality cult. His remains were quietly transferred to a more modest resting place near the Kremlin, which still attracts diehard communists.
