Stuff About Me:

A little girl in my 6-year-old son's kindergarten class lost her mommy February 8, 2016. I got a text about a family violence situation and a lock down at the school. A bloody murder. A little girl who cannot come back to school since the courts are deciding her fate.

I can't imagine how my 6-year-old's friend feels, knowing her mommy is dead and her daddy is in jail. I'm just the dad of a little kid. I'm no psychologist or professional child therapist. I just cry when I know another kid is crying.

I can't solve family violence. I'm a book author and a public speaker. But maybe the children's book I wrote and illustrated inspired by my 6-year-old can put a smile on other little boys' and girls' faces.

Maybe that's a step in the right direction. Maybe that's all it takes to take a bad situation and make it a little better.
