WHYLD47 – Peaceful Parkland? The Day My Daughter Did Not Return From School – Lori Alhadeff

It should have been a peaceful day. Valentine’s Day. School was nearly over. And then the unthinkable happened… The day Alyssa Alhadeff and sixteen other souls died at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, everything turned upside down. It shook a nation – once more. It left a scar in Parkland’s oh-so-peaceful community. And it altered Lori Alhadeff’s forever.

On February 13th 2018, she had been a stay-at-home mum of three. On February 15th, darkest grief had remade her into a fierce fighter on a national stage. Turning her grief into action, Lori became a relentless change-maker. Today, she needs two secretaries to organize her busy, public life.

“Now I’m Alyssa’s voice and I know that the tragedy happened, but we have to make a change moving forward.”
