This story is very sad. “Police say a New Tampa mom shot her teen children to death” I would have loved to try and help this family. Obviously, she had some mental issues, but I also believe we as a country need to do more for families who have a loved one overseas.
The stress for a Mom caring for teenage children when they have a husband overseas can be overwhelming. It is overwhelming at times when all cylinders are on go for a regular family, throw in a husband in combat and the situation can be explosive. Let’s help these families in any way we can.
Sadly, I think the military and society tends to forget a Mom with teenage children. They have programs for Moms with infant children or toddlers, but the issues that come up with teenagers is a far cry different. That is where I come in. The military needs my program for families of service members.
I truly believe in all my heart that Lawton911 can help thousands of families of military personal. I want to start a campaign to help these people BEFORE tragedies like what happened in Tampa happen again. It sure is worth the try.
Please let me know your thoughts and I will start a letter writing campaign to our elected officials to help the ones that are keeping us safe. Let’s help the forgotten ones, the ones with teenage age children.
