Dear Loveland Magazine Readers,

I wanted to make sure you saw this email from Nicole Hockley.

The social media posts she sent were examples of warning signs signaling someone might have been planning to hurt themselves or someone else. And research shows in four out of five school shootings, attackers told someone about their plans beforehand.

Sandy Hook Promise’s Say Something program trains students how to recognize warning signs of violence and tell a trusted adult who can intervene to prevent a tragedy. During Say Something Week, October 24-28, we’re helping more than 1,000 schools and youth organizations across the country implement this lifesaving program – and we provide the training materials at no cost.

It’s only a couple weeks away, and it’s crucial we get this lifesaving program into as many schools and youth organizations as possible to protect more children from gun violence. I hope you’ll help get your local school or youth organization to participate:

Click here to learn how you can bring Say Something to your local school or youth organization October 24–28, and help protect children in your community from gun violence.

Thank you so much for your help – it makes a real difference in our work to prevent tragedies and build a safer future for our children.

Friend,

I have an important question for you: If a student saw one of these social media posts, would you want him or her to report it?

Planning the school shooting ća; ća; ća;

The painful truth is there are warning signs like these before most tragedies: Research shows that in four out of five school shootings, attackers tell someone about their plans beforehand. And with students back in school, we’re working harder than ever to make sure children and adults know how to recognize the signs of violence before a tragedy happens.

That’s why we need to hear from Sandy Hook Promise supporters like you: If a student saw a warning sign like those in the above social media posts, would you want him or her to report it?

Thank you so much for taking the time to respond, and for helping me continue to honor my beautiful butterfly Dylan. Your input and support help us work toward a future where no other parent ever has to experience the heartbreaking loss of a child.

With love,

Nicole Hockley (Dylan’s mom)
