On Friday’s Houston Matters: Tomorrow marks one year since the mass shooting at Santa Fe High School, where a gunman killed ten people and injured 13 others. The school is holding a day of remembrance today to honor the victims.

During the past year, News 88.7 has been following the stories of some of the families directly affected by the tragedy. Today, we get a glimpse of how the shooting has affected two people in particular: a man who lost his wife and a student who's faced debilitating injuries and numerous surgeries. We also explore efforts to address school safety in the Texas Legislature.

Also this hour: New York Times columnist David Brooks says society’s emphasis on accomplishment and status often leads us feeling empty. In his latest book, he writes that meaning and fulfillment often are found on what he calls The Second Mountain of life.

And, from the redemption of a bad cook to some unwelcome comments from former Rocket Scottie Pippen, we hash out The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of the week’s news.

We offer a daily podcast here, on iTunes, Stitcher, and other podcasting apps.
