Momma said to love...

To the families of these young men, I am deeply sorry for your loss.  You are in my thoughts and prayers and I pray that you and yours can find peace during this awful time.  To Asher, Raymond, Tyler, Billy and Seth, I know that you are in a better place now, that you are safe, laughing and free.  Know that we love you and your passing will inspire change. You have given other children who are in pain the strength to keep the faith that one day we will live in a world with no hate.

As parents it is our job to teach our children to love. Hate in born and bred. It is a vicious cycle that can end with us. What we teach our children defines us. Let's teach them to love, only love. Fat, short, skinny, tall, black, white, gay, straight, ugly, beautiful, nerdy, goth... just love them all. Our children need to understand that they are entitled to their individuality... that they are embraced and appreciated for WHO THEY ARE, not who we think they should be. Lead by example... love by example and your children will LIVE by your example.

-Momma Ash
