Alissa and I have been a bit quiet lately. Thank you for being patient with us as we juggle our Safe and Sound projects and the care of our healing families. Some days are easier than others; but, everyday is about owning where we each are on our journey and remembering the little girls we love, pushing us to never give up. I don’t mind telling you, they are seriously pushy!
We are well into 2014 with a list of projects on the whiteboard that I am both excited about–and daunted by if I’m being perfectly honest! We are a band of volunteers ranging from stay-at-home moms to leading safety experts, all with “day jobs” and family lives. We can do this, right?!
Seriously, we can, as long as we share the goals and the work. We all get charged when we collaborate and work together toward our common goal: making our nation’s schools safer through the education, active awareness, and collaboration of all school safety stakeholders. I know. It’s a mouthful. I still have to work on my elevator speech. Can somebody put that on the whiteboard?
For now, it’s off to another day of “Safe and Sound Stuff” (as my family has taken to calling it), punctuated by a few loads of laundry, the dishes, and walks with the dog. It’s a beautifully, snowy day to get up, get going, and make the world a safer place for our children.
