In honor of the fifth anniversary of the Sandy Hook shooting I am re-posting this EVE. In her eyes I saw the sadness of her loss. But I also saw the calm determination to work towards gun control reform. Her son who was killed would be 11 this year.
“That protective instinct that comes from becoming a mother – you want to be your best for them. Feeling the movement of the babies inside you and knowing you are growing a person is overwhelming, humbling, exciting and scary. I have two boys, one is no longer living. He was murdered when he was six years old in the Sandy Hook School shooting.” – Nicole Hockley is the Founder and Managing Director of Sandy Hook Promise.
