I Choose to be Happy: A School Shooting Survivor's Triumph over Tragedy
Author of

Thank you Newport and Bellevue!!

What an incredible day on Aug. 22! Three talks in six hours at three amazing schools in Northern Kentucky! Thank you to Newport Middle School, Newport High School and Bellevue High School for your warm receptions. The love you showed me was absolutely amazing! And to Lt. Col. Mike Wills, the assistant superintendent in Newport, who said this was “one of the most powerful and moving assemblies I have witnessed in 22 years of education” – well, I don’t even know what to say. I am humbled by your kind words, and cannot wait to come back to your district!

And thank you to Channels 9 and 12 in Cincinnati, and the Cincinnati Enquirer newspaper, for covering my talks at the three schools! I appreciate all of the publicity! 🙂
