With the recent school shooting in Parkland we are once again faced with the tragedy of the death of children. Every parent, grandparent, aunt and uncle undoubtedly gave their children an extra tight hug; thankful it wasn’t them in the school, that they were still able to hug them. Maybe this was even you.
Here at Ohana Oasis we thought immediately of the parents left behind and the long, hard, and winding path of grief they are just beginning. We thought of the many, many parents of previous school shootings who are still walking the path of grief, who may be wondering if their children have been forgotten, as if their grief is no longer valid.
Many feel powerless to create positive change from something so incredibly awful. Because of this national focus and desire to just do something, I sent a personal open letter titled ‘We Remember’ to ensure the parents from previous school shootings are not forgotten, nor are their children. This letter personally invites them to participate in a retreat.
