Emotional. Powerful. Hopeful.
Just a few of the words that fill my heart and head when I think about my experience at the #marchforourlives march last Saturday. My husband and I proudly walked with three of our children along with many other families who are a part of the Samaritans365 family spreading #kindness while sharing our hopes for the future; the future our children want to be a part of. A future where there don't have to be "active shooter" drills - much worse than the "duck and cover" drills of my childhood or hiding under the desk in case of a tornado. Parkland is a mere 10 minutes from my home and a community not much unlike our own. This tragedy is a slap in the face wake up call that this can and will happen in any community. #change must happen. We must work to make our schools and communities the safe places they should be.
The emotional words of the survivors, teachers and parents of the victims still fill my head and heart, but also give me the encouragement to keep working towards #change #neveragain #enoughisenough #parklandstrong #msdstrong
