On Wednesday, CNN host Brooke Baldwin opened up a segment on her show in silence. For over one minute Baldwin sat in silence as a screen behind her displayed images of school shootings.
“Those voices, those images are from Highlands Ranch, Colorado, where authorities are investigating a school shooting,” Baldwin said after breaking her silence.
“One student was killed, eight others were injured. And it happened at the STEM school in Highlands Ranch. It is a public charter school. It is in a suburb. It is seven miles from Columbine high school,” she said.
So far in 2019, there have been “15 school shootings in the US in which someone was hurt or killed,” reported CNN. However, there have been doubled the shootings in the school year altogether.
“Again, what happened in Colorado marks the 35th school shooting in this country in this school year alone,” Baldwin said.

The comments in response to two sponsored posts on Facebook promoting an upcoming Winston-Salem concert by the Grammy-winning and internationally-acclaimed group Tinariwen came in a steady drip of loathing, vitriol and menace.

Chris Wallace burns down Stephen Miller over Trump’s racist lies: He let ‘send her back’ chant ‘go for 13 seconds’
White House adviser Stephen Miller on Sunday defended President Donald Trump's racist tweets directed at four non-white congresswomen: Reps. Ilhan Omar (MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Ayanna Pressley (MA) and Rashida Tlaib (MI).
In an interview on Fox News, host Chris Wallace asked Miller to explain Trump's "go back" remark and the "send her back" chant at a recent presidential rally.
