A note that a young girl wrote on her arm while hiding in a classroom during a school lockdown in Delaware is going viral online.
The 7-year-old girl was attending class at the Odyssey Charter School in Wilmington, Del., when the campus went on lockdown. The temporary closure came in response to a bomb threat made to the building on Feb. 7, the young girl’s mother, Shelley Harrison Reed, told The Hill on Thursday morning.
The article states that The Hill contacted Reed after her post went viral, and she confirmed she had no political agenda about gun control in sharing the post. Th report goes on to state the following:
“I was just simply posting my emotions when it happened and I wanted to share that, as I said in the post, with the other moms that had gone through that, that day,” Reed said.
“But now that it has taken on a life of its own, I think the message is clear that we as parents in this day and age are just so frightened for our kids’ safety in school – which is probably the place where they should feel the most safe,” Reed continued. “And we don’t have a solution unfortunately at this point and I wish we could find one.”

So my kids school had a genuine lockdown today. Some whack job called in a bomb threat
Police came and everything was fine, Thank God!
My guys seemed fine when they got home and they talked about it with me, and told me their versions of what happened and then went right into their homework and normal after school stuff, and all seemed fine.
It wasn’t until later when Vanessa was changing out of her school uniform that I saw this on her arm….
I say to her, why did you write that on your arm?
She says, in case the bad guy got to us and I got killed, you and daddy would know that I love you, and she started to cry (as did I as I watched a little piece of her innocence get stolen away)
To know that my 7yo was put in a position to think that thought is absolutely gut wrenching and it’s killing me inside.
It’s now been a couple hours, and I can’t seem to shake this awful feeling, feeling of sadness, fear, and plain disgusts for this new ‘normal’ our kids have to deal with on any given day…..it’s a very scary and disturbing society we now live in, and it’s heartbreaking
Sorry for the long post, I’m just thinking a lot of my mom friends who also went through this today are probably feeling the same way..
