What a walk we had

It’s 9:00pm on Saturday and I’m exhausted. But my exhaustion comes from a good place. Today I witnessed an outpouring of love and support that has truly humbled me. Hundreds and hundreds of people from near and far turned out in support of my son Jordan and others that have fallen victim to the atrocities of bullies.  Today was just the spark; today my mission was made clear; today I began a fight that I will not back down from. There are so many people I have to thank but I cannot list them all here. You all know who you are, today was a day that YOU made happen. I promise to not let your efforts go to waste – I will make a difference in the life of a child. I love you all so much and I am blessed you are part of my life. Sincerely, Jordan’s Dad

It Could Have Been My Kid

I am honored to have been asked to speak at this important event.  I want to thank the members of Temple Aliyah for bringing awareness to the community and putting this event together.  I hope to see you there.  Sincerely, Jordan’s Dad

More thoughts, more fears, more questions

The new normal…it isn’t easy. I thought today was going to be a good day, at least it started out that way. But now, as I sit here watching Jordan sleep, I pray the excruciating headache he had has finally passed. Will he wake up again in pain? Should I even go to bed? What if he needs me and I’m asleep? What if I don’t hear him call out? More thoughts, more fears, more questions. And here I am again, pounding away at the keys trying to make sense of it all…in front of a world of social media. It’s kind of ironic that I am using this medium to process the events that took place and it was this medium led to the events that took place. Before I leave my keyboard and go check on Jordan, I ask you all to remember the last line of my favorite saying; The world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.  Sincerely, Jordan’s Dad

“The guy just came up from behind and sucker punched me right here,” Peisner, a freshman at El Camino Real Charter High School said, pointing to his head.
