On May 24, 2022, the unthinkable happened in Uvalde, Texas, when a heavily armed 18-year-old gunman opened fire on Robb Elementary school and took the lives of nineteen children and two teachers.

Kimberly and Angel’s 10-year-old daughter, Amerie, was one of the students killed in the shooting. Both say they feel guilt over Amerie’s death even though they could not have predicted what was going to happen to their child.

“As her father, I feel like it was my job to protect her,” says Angel.

Kimberly, who was at Robb Elementary to cheer Amerie on at an awards ceremony earlier that day, says, “I should have known. Maybe I could have taken her home instead of leaving her there.”

Part one of this two-part Dr. Phil Exclusive, “Two Families, One Tragedy,” airs Thursday. And on Friday’s conclusion, “Through a Child’s Eyes: Surviving a Mass Tragedy,” 11-year-old Khloie talks about surviving the Uvalde Elementary School shooting and the guilt she says she also carries with her over the loss of her friend Amerie.
