A journey through grief in tweets is helping my brave and thoughtful niece, Carly, express herself in a powerful and impactful way. I thank her for her raw honesty and marvel at her ability to capture the essence of what she is feeling in 280 characters or less. Carly just graduated from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
As an Aunt, my heart aches for Carly and for my sister. As a school nurse, I am in search of answers, along with so many others. #SchoolNursesDemandAction is a gaining traction around the country thanks to Twitter and the power of social media. I realize that some cannot or choose not to take such a public stand and I respect their decision. For those who do want to participate in this effort, please reach out and let us know.
