The only thing I can do is wake up each day and do everything I can to save other parents from having to go through this.
Dear Loveland Magazine Readers,
It has been 1,460 days since my beautiful butterfly Dylan was murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary.
I would do anything to go back and change time – anything not to be writing you this, dreading having to mark another year without my little boy tomorrow. But December 14, 2012, will always be the last day I hugged and kissed Dylan, and I know that’s never going to change.
Nothing will ever change how much I miss him, how much I love him, how much I ache to hear his infectious giggles – not four years, 10 years or 20 years. The only thing I can do is wake up each day and do everything I can to save other parents from having to go through this.

Please, in honor of Dylan, give what you can right now to help protect more children from gun violence:
Click here to renew your Sandy Hook Promise membership with a tax-deductible donation of $25 or more now. Your gift today is what will allow us to keep working every single day to save more lives, and we’re so grateful for your support.
It means so much that because of your support, we’ve already trained nearly 1.5 million students and adults in our Know the Signs programs. That’s almost 1.5 million people who are now empowered to recognize and report warning signs of violence, prevent a tragedy like Sandy Hook and save a life like Dylan’s.
But I can’t stand the thought of turning away a school that’s requested one of our prevention programs, or not having the resources to fight for lifesaving legislative reforms – and that’s exactly what could happen if we miss this year-end goal. Please, help us stay on track by giving as much as you can before midnight:
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your support. It’s what will get me through tomorrow and every day that separates me from Dylan.
