The Perfect PSA

The new Public Service Announcement released last week by the Sandy Hook Promise advocacy group has taken over our news feeds and I personally, couldn’t be happier about it.

I’m happy to see the victims of this unthinkable tragedy make an impact on our hearts and minds without the added political agenda. If there is one thing that can drive away viewers it’s your personal opinion on sensitive topics such as this.

Nicole Hockley (@NicoleHockley) is the mother of Dylan Hockley who tragically fell a victim in the Sandy Hook school shooting in 2012.  Ms. Hockley so brilliantly stated in an interview on Good Morning America that “we wanted to create consumer awareness, plain and simple,” and “this is not a hopeless issue. There are things that you can do in your own community, in your own school to prevent violence.”

Take away the fact that I am the mother of two small children, one of which is in public school and take away my pro-second amendment views. You still have an impartial PSA that was extraordinarily executed.

I have chronic bitch face and I’m ok with that. My love language is Amazon Prime. I have two kids that are pretty awesome. There’s this tall guy thats been hanging around since the 10th grade so I told him I loved him and married him - He wears camo for a living, and I dig that! I really love school. Its true! I get passionate about things quickly then write about it here. I started this blog about a year ago and last summer I started freelancing on the side for a few different organizations. I got a handful of opportunities to be a guest blogger for some parenting sites in the U.K. and since then, I've been trying to build my audience. I can assure you this isn't just another "mom blog." I'm opinionated, I cuss a little (a lot), and I like booze so hopefully that entices you to take a look. I'm also a military Spouse and politics run deep in my home. I work full time with youth and adolescents that face severe and complex mental health issues. And lastly, I'm a full time student working on my Masters in substance abuse/mental health prevention science. BOOMER! Put all of that in one bag and you'll understand why I drink and love a good convo! Check out my work from over the last year, I can promise you there is something for everyone.
