I grew up with guns in the house and we knew better than to touch them.
My little girl is my priority. There is no excuse for anybody to shoot up a school. That kid calculated and planned a murder spree.
It doesn't matter the weapon he used. Just the other day a Chinese man killed 29 people with a knife.
We need children like Nikolas Cruz evaluated. We need to talk to our kids about bullying. We need to equip our teachers with the means to help children who feel like there is no other way.
We need the FBI to start taking suspicions seriously. We need our local police to follow up with schools on concerns.
I don't care if my daughter goes to a school with metal detectors. I am would rather it.
We can argue for days about gun control but the next school massacre could easily be done with a bomb, knife, or other weapon of choice.
I am so proud of this little girl right here. Her grades are spectacular. She is always polite. She wants to read everyday. She is a blessing in our lives.
My dear Emily, my wish for you is to grow up strong. Never lower your voice because someone is uncomfortable. Stand by your beliefs. Never be afraid to speak your mind. Never depend on anyone. Save your money. Studying everything. Learn a new language. Travel the world!
I love you baby girl!
