My heart deeply hurts for the children and their families in South Florida that are going through a living hell.

These senseless acts have to stop.

Enough!

Like thousands in South Florida, we sent the boys to school in Broward County this morning… there are no words to describe the despair, horror & anger. This does not have to be our collective reality. How many more? How many children must not make it home?
