Remembering Covenant

Source: The Pamphleteer
by Davis Hunt

“Today marks a year since the Covenant tragedy. After the news broke, I drove over to my parents’ house, which is just around the corner from the school, and watched the news broadcast on TV. Growing up, my family was (and still is) very involved in the church. So, as rumors began to swirl and the day drew long, it felt particularly close to home. The Pamphleteer took most of that week off, save for one Thursday piece I published to try and clear the air. I took great issue with the media coverage and people’s reactions across social media, from the leftists who used it as an opportunity to stump for gun legislation to the right-wing conspiracy theory crowd whose rhetoric differed only in its content. I never would have guessed I’d be in the position to write what I wrote to an audience of readers that week.” (03/27/24)
