'We'll carry her story with us': Girl Scouts Honor Girl, 10, killed in Texas school shooting

The Girl Scout is awarded a Bronze Cross for risking her life or trying to save her life.

A 10-year-old girl who was the victim of a mass shooting at a school in the United States last week has been posthumously awarded the Girl Scout’s highest award – the Bronze Cross. Amery Joe Garza was a student at Uvalade School in Texas, where a gunman entered a classroom and opened fire, killing 19 students and two teachers.

In a tweet, the Girl Scouts shared a picture of Amery and said that “the Girl Scouts were given a bronze cross at the risk of their own lives or trying to save lives”.

On May 24, a lone gunman stormed Rob Elementary School, where about 600 students were studying in grades 2 to 4, just two days before the start of summer vacation. The gunman, Salvador Ramos, 18, was shot dead by police. He reportedly shot his grandmother before leaving for school with a handgun and a rifle and body armor.

In a subsequent tweet, the agency added, “On May 24, Amery did her best to save the lives of her classmates and teachers. As Amery’s councilor, it was an honor to present her family with a bronze cross, and the Girl Scouts will continue to pay their respects today with a colorful presentation at her funeral. “

In the third tweet Girl Scouts wrote, “We will always carry her story with us and make sure her courageous deeds will last for generations.”

In a statement, Girl Scouts said Amery was a brilliant fourth-grader who enjoyed play-doh, played with friends during breaks and was a Girl Scout. Most recently, she completed her Girl Scout Bridging Ceremony and even received an award for rolling A and B honors at school. “She was proud of the badges she received,” added the Girl Scouts

In the first five months of this year in the United States, Texas had the 199th mass shooting. It has rekindled calls for gun control in America.

When U.S. President Joe Biden went to Uvalade to pray for the victims a few days ago, people shouted desperately from the streets and called on him to “do something” to stop gun violence. “We will. We will,” President Biden responded.
