As a mother and daughter, I am sending my love, prayers and tears to all those innocent souls affected by last Friday's horrible school shooting. Every day I drop my daughter off at school believing that she will be safe. It's events like this that show how fragile life really is and how we can never take our children's hugs for granted. In learning more about the details of that sad event, I hope that my daughter has such heroic teachers in her life. Despite everything, they tried to create a haven of calmness, love and safety. Their acts of bravery still send chills down my spine. May their names never be forgotten. And, may those parents, who had their worst nightmares come true, know that they are not alone.
