I am overcome with emotion. Pain, anger, sadness and confusion. It's overwhelming but I know it starts with each one of us doing our part. In our home, we are always trying to inform and teach our children about the world and the people around them. I love seeing how pure of heart they are, truly. It will always be my intention, my goal, and priority to keep that open dialogue alive because I know that it starts at home. It means waking up everyday and always thinking about how to do better, how to be of service, how we change the dialogue. It's through action. We always have to try. It's when we all come together that things can change.
