I have taught my children so many things though out the years. The simple things, how to brush their teeth, go potty, tie their shoes, say please and thank you. But these things pale in comparison to what my children have taught me. From my oldest, Madison, I have learned to hold my chin up high in the face of opposition. She has this way of showing the world her strength and opinion with confidence and pride. From my youngest, Kenny, I have learned to speak up. “Hey look at me! Watch what I can do!” His voice always loud and clear as he states his intentions. Then there is J.T. the beloved angel who taught me courage and compassion because he was never afraid and giving, to him, came naturally. Collectively they have taught me faith because in them I see God’s beauty and promise. So it is for our Children…no, our Teachers that I say enough! Enough of these beautiful beings, who have only begun to give to this world, being taken from us. Enough painful e-mails pouring in telling the same story over and over again. It is time to stand and say enough so that we can continue to learn from those who teach us life’s most valuable lessons.
