(Bloomberg) — As a hospice chaplain who served in two pediatric trauma hospitals, Teresa Kim Pecinovksy says that she will never forget witnessing the death of a child. Hearing a mother keening over her son or daughter isn’t a feeling she can articulate. “We don’t have a word in English to encapsulate the sound,” she says.

When she learned about the May 24 elementary school shooting in Uvalde, Texas — which has claimed the lives of 19 children and 2 adults — Pecinovksy thought she would throw up. She is pregnant with her third child; a Houston resident and ordained minister with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), she is geographically far from the scene, but it feels near to her as a Texan. She says she felt called to do something with the rage and indignation she feels. “As clergy, we should be at the forefront leading the way,” she says.

So Pecinovsky is organizing an interfaith demonstration on May 27 in downtown Houston to protest the presence of the National Rifle Association, which is hosting its annual meeting at the George R. Brown Convention Center over Memorial Day weekend. She and Megan Hansen, a Presbyterian elder based in the Houston suburbs, are inviting dozens of followers from several different faiths — Christian, Jewish, Muslim and Buddhist — to pray outside the convention center before leading a silent march through the building during the convention.

A demonstrator with March for Our Lives, an anti-gun violence organization, speaks near the White House ahead of the State of the Union speech in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Tuesday, March 1, 2022. President Biden will need to rediscover his foreign policy expertise and deft touch with everyday Americans, qualities that polls show many voters now doubt, in his first State of the Union speech as the U.S. and its allies step up pressure on Russia over Ukraine.
