Tag: don’t just be sorry

my question for you..

What does don’t be sorry be active mean? It means I know you are sorry I lost my daughter .. I know you are sorry she suffered.. I know you are sorry she is gone and sorry that maybe even you miss her too… But that sorry. Its not enough. Not enough because she is still fighting.. Her cells .. living and growing pieces of her.. they are fighting .. SHE is fighting but she needs help. Money. Awareness. Help to make both of those things happen. Sorry isn’t enough for Jennifer. And. And for your kids. Sorry isn’t enough for any of our kids. Sorry doesn’t stop the tragedy.. the death…the suffering from happening. It just protects your eyes.. unless.. . it get drops inside your own home and you simply cannot avert your eyes any longer. Let me pose this question. Would you do more? Would you do it[…]

I always want to figure it out. I always want to know why I am aching so much more than normal. But even now. Just sitting down behind my computer the tears are already flowing.. And I can’t say for sure why. There is a little girl, she looks very much like my Jennifer. Aptly named, her FB page is Katherine the Brave. And her mom has shared videos of her.

Leaving them completely aware of whats happening. ***moments after I posted this Katherines mom posted she had joined Jennifer earlier this evening. I hope they can become friends. And I am so damned sorry*** I saw one recently .. just scrolled past.. I didn’t need[…]

-The 2nd 12th –

If you want to know what I would like today I will shamelessly tell you. Two things for two years. first Get angry. Be brave. Go here. Or here. And press print. .. Maybe 6 times since she is forever 6. Or 7 times for the 7 children that we lost today. Or 2 times for the 2 years my Jennifer has been gone. .. But print. And share. I read yesterday somebody paid for another families dinner at a restaurant and asked the sever to give them the fact sheet.. or pay for the person behind you at Starbucks.. Or simply walk up to somebody and give them the information. Listen to your heart. I believe she will guide you to the right person. She died. She didn’t have to … but … Somewhere in the neighborhood of 5,110 have died since my Jennifer. Shame on us.  Don’t just be[…]
