IMG_4142I was privileged to share the following message at the Historical Court House;

As a School Board Representative and parent of two students in Citrus County schools, I stand with you against bullying and all forms of aggression against our young people. The word bullying may have different meanings to individuals, but for me ANY threat against our students should not be tolerated. As a School Board, we support systems, policies, and trainings that ensure students know and feel they are safe.

On a personal level, I know what it feels like to be threatened, insulted, and hurt both physically and emotionally.

Today, we stand together—Today, we unite—Today, we are not alone!
