Sydney Aiello, a 19-year-old survivor of last year's mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, took her own life last weekend after living with post-traumatic stress disorder following the shooting, per CBS News.

The big picture: Aiello's death is a reminder that the effects of traumatic events like Parkland, the nation's deadliest school shooting since the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting, can reverberate long afterward. Family friends write on a GoFundMe page set up in her honor that she "aspired to work in the medical field helping others in need."

The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-8255) provides 24/7, free and confidential support for anyone in distress, in addition to prevention and crisis resources. Also available for online chat.

Rudy Giuliani, one of President Trump's attorneys, told the Washington Post that Trump's legal team has prepared a "counter report" to possibly challenge elements of Mueller's investigation. He also has no inside information on the delivery date for Mueller's report, the Post reports.

"It’s like waiting for a baby. Or, maybe, it’s more like waiting for a jury. You make your case, then you have to wait days for that verdict. ... If the report is good, I'll give out cigars."
— Giuliani, in a phone interview with the Post

Indonesian airline Garuda is seeking to cancel the remainder of its $4.9 billion order for 48 more Boeing 737 MAX 8 jets, after at least 40 countries suspended the jets' operation due to 2 fatal crashes of the brand new aircraft in the last 6 months, the New York Times reports.

The big picture: Garuda's pullout is the latest blow to Boeing, as the loss of 2 brand new aircraft in 6 months has no precedent in modern aviation history and has threatened one of the company's main sources of revenue. Multiple investigations are now underway into how the 737 MAX was certified, including the Inspector General's office at the U.S. Transportation Department, the FBI, a federal grand jury and House and Senate committees.
