Three days after a cowardly attack and I’m sitting here in the middle of the night watching my son moan in pain from a terrible headache. The feelings of anger, pain, fear, confusion, sadness, depression, all bouncing though my sleep deprived head but my brain always circles back to WHY? Parenting is the greatest thing that has ever happened in my life and raising children is truly the most rewarding job anyone can ever experience. I pray that every parent living on this planet remembers that creating a child is simple but raising a child takes a lot of time, dedication, involvement, patience, love, sadness, courage, openness, selflessness, honesty, energy, faith, kindness, ethics, and so much more. Be your child’s first responder – get involved in their lives and know what is going on. Prevent becoming enraged by getting more engaged. Thanks again for letting me use this as a way to process my feelings.

Sincerely, Jordan’s Dad
