Hi William! Thanks for such a thoughtful response. We have yet to find a solution for these heartbreaking events. I appreciate your statistics too, although the ones I found were different, significantly higher.

There are many unexpected ways life can be over in an instant.

I remember the story of the mother you reference, and, it seems an impossible choice. It’s one every parent hopes to never have to face. That mother showed bravery in doing what she thought was the right thing to do.

She saw something and said something.

True, it’s far from perfect, but I’m not sure there’s a perfect solution to much of anything in life. We do the best we can in tough situations. In these cases, and in the events at our school, we know that things could have been very different without #SeeSomethingSaySomething.
