On Wednesday, Stevie Nicks reflected on the one-year anniverary of the Robb Elementary School mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas. She shared a story about living in El Paso as a child and aspiring to be a “prima ballerina.” She described the creative path that eventually led to becoming the great singer-songwriter that she is today, but only because “[she] got to grow up and be Stevie Nicks.”
“I can’t help but ask myself, what if I had been shot and killed by a gun while in my ballet class in the third grade? And I can’t help but think of all those little lost futures,” she lamented.
In closing, she vowed, “I will do all I can to keep this story alive.”
