Six years old is such a memorable time ..unimaginable.. so sad that it has taken 27 lives for society to appreciate the heroics of #TEACHERS.
Yes…a #teacher threw herself in the line of bullets and faced death for her students..so not surprised..i was raised by the #GREATNESS of two #teachers and a #principal. In addition…my sister..also an #educator (children she counseled didn’t even want to return to the same school after she died) — (still proudly remember to this date my dads students coming up to me..”oh my GOD..you’re Mr. Jones daughter”..”your dad was everything to me and my favorite teacher EVER..same story of my mom) even recall a recent twitter conversation with comedian Rickey Smiley who always fondly and lovingly spoke about Mrs. Jones!! *Heartwarming* but..like all of America…this unfathomable story will resonate in my mind as a wake up call to the world..that i am grateful.
The grief is beyond deep but i believe with God’s grace and faith, these parents will be able to move on through great memories.
All amazing teachers who have touched my life in an extremely valuable and profound way will forever hold a place in my heart..#LOVE.
I’m wearing #green tomorrow in honor of #vickisoto ‘s wake and death and my sis. #newtown #rip to my own sister and educator #vanessa (only a few short months since God called you home) … #1908.
Careful review of antiquated Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, value of life, mental health policies and issues, perpetuator himself, super wise and better parenting and sensationalized violence found in almost every form of entertainment still doesn’t answer the ‘WHY’..
