More and more stories and details about yesterday’s heartbreaking massacre at a Nashville, Tennessee, elementary school are emerging and making their way into the media. The New York Post reported on the words of the grieving young sister of one of the victims, herself a survivor of the murders:
“Nashville Christian school shooting victim Evelyn Dieckhaus’ older sister broke down in sobs as she mourned the 9-year-old on Monday, crying out that she doesn’t ‘want to be an only child.’
Evelyn’s sister Eleanor survived the rampage that killed her younger sibling and five others at the Covenant school, The Missourian reported.
Woodmont Christian Church senior minister Clay Stauffer emotionally recalled the fifth-grader’s heartbreak over her new reality at a vigil on Monday evening.
“‘I don’t want to be an only child,’” he quoted Eleanor as saying, according to The Tennessean.
A family friend remembered the slain 9-year-old on Monday as ‘very creative.’
‘She and her older sister would stage plays in the backyard. She was just an absolute delight,’ said the friend, who spoke to The Missourian but asked not to be named.”
The comments come as many mourn their respective loved ones.
“The Dieckhaus family issued a statement on Tuesday saying their hearts are ‘completely broken.’
‘We cannot believe this has happened,’ the statement read. ‘Evelyn was a shining light in this world. We appreciate all the love and support but ask for space as we grieve.’”
One question at such a time is, why? Reports have emerged of a diagnosed emotional disorder on the part of the murderer and some commentary has touched upon the recent call to action for a “Transgender Day of Vengeance.” Police have reported that they have located a “manifesto” belonging to the murderer, however, so more information is expected to come to light in the days ahead.
