UVALDE, Texas – You can still see the bullet fragments in 11-year-old Miah Cerrillo’s left shoulder.

The size of a small coin, the wound could be scar tissue or a birthmark, if not for the small dark spots just under the surface.

They are also embedded in her back, where, especially on her left side, they still cause her pain. Where the bullet fragments struck her on the sides of her head, the paths they carved burned away some of her hair. Miah loves her hair.
