NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Uvalde, Texas, Justice of the Peace Eulalio Diaz predicted Saturday that the community of Uvalde faces a “long road” to healing after the town’s shooting at Robb Elementary School on “Cross Country.”

JUDGE EULALIO DIAZ: [We] try to heal – work to try to heal. It’s going to be a tough road. It just hasn’t affected families who have lost children or loved ones. It affected the whole community because everyone somehow has a connection to an individual [who] lost someone… It’s going to be a long road. I said, I know when the cameras finally go, we must have counseling assistance available to our people here, and to help us through this. And we have to have them there whenever school starts in August, because the kids are out.

The children are out of school now and they are not coming back. So it’s not like you can contact them, and in some of the south texas cultures and where we are, in most places, people are not going to ask for help. And they’ll say, “I’m fine, I’m fine.” Like, I’ll say for now, “I’m fine,” but after that, I’m going to have to visit – I’m going to have to travel – talk to someone to let him out.
