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:
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.

Subject: Warning signs
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?
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?
