I became a candidate for Broward County School Board to ensure my daughter and the 16 others on 2/14/18 would not die in vain. It has deeply impacted the community. These threats can never be allowed to fester again. The @browardschools lawsuit against @SunSentinel should send a chill down our collective spines.

This is the definitive summary of the school safety meeting hosted by @BetsyDeVosED. In addition to the comments included here I said: Despite the optimism shared by some of the panelist, I don’t feel we have made any progress on this issue in the 19 years since Columbine. When Mr. Eid related the failure at Columbine, it was as if he talking about Parkland.

Stoneman Douglas Shooter Was Assigned To Controversial Broward Discipline Program, Officials Now Say tinyurl.com/ycrbaotz This is a stunning revelation & one that flies in the face of previous statements. That the District released it on a Sunday is all the more concerning.

With the term hero being thrown around indiscriminately, I thought I'd share a few observations on true heroism demonstrated before, during and in the aftermath of the Parkland shooting. #NeverAgain #Parkland #MSDStrong A hero sees something and says something #NeverAgain #Parkland #MSDStrong
