But, unfortunately, there are some rumors going around about our school. I’ve tried to remain quiet…
Now, before you jump in and say THIS story about Jordan IS different. Let me ask you. Is it? Do you know without a shadow of a doubt you haven’t jumped the gun?
You have so BOLDLY taken ONE Facebook post from an uncle in California-and believed it. All of it.
You want to know: How can anyone defend THE other side of the story? How could ANYONE have the nerve to defend THOSE “other people.”
I can. And I will. I BOLDLY will. I PROUDLY will. I have 4 daughters. One of them was recently diagnosed with cancer. All 4 of them have attended this AMAZING school since Kindergarten.
My daughter currently fighting for her LIFE hasn’t raised over $40,000 in a gofundme. Childhood cancer is a FACT.
You READ Jordan broke his arm because a 13-year-old “beat him up and body slammed him.” Do you KNOW that to be a FACT?” Ask his uncle and mom. They KNOW it’s not. Ask Jordan. He would tell you that’s not how he broke his arm. Do you know for a FACT every detail that took place that day? I can’t tell you EVERY detail because I wasn’t there. Nor were you. But, you have bought this one sided story because it’s something so many of us are passionate about. We SHOULD be.
What we SHOULD NOT BE DOING is creating things that didn’t happen. We SHOULD NOT be making a story out to be something it isn’t-to gain sympathy, national attention and a VERY quickly growing gofundme. You have quickly believed what you wanted to believe. Just remember there is ALWAYS more than one side to EVERY story.
Many of you want to know WHY no one from the school is speaking out. There is an ACTIVE investigation going on. They are BOUND by legalities to NOT speak out. You’ve heard the ONE side because it came from a third party-Jordan’s uncle. He is not legally bound to keep quiet.
Nor am I. I have nothing to gain from speaking out. I am simply a mom who has silently watched MY school be attacked because a family chose to lie. Remember-there is video surveillance to support this. Remember this when the WHOLE story comes out. Remember the story YOU read from the uncle….
Jordan was the victim and DIDN’T initiate this. Jordan did NOTHING wrong and didn’t instigate. I am NOT saying ANYONE is innocent. Let me make that VERY clear. There WAS an incident. It is being investigated. ALL parties involved need to be given consequences that fit their actions.
Including Jordan. The TRUE story will come out. And it is NOT what you have read.
Why am I speaking out? I am simply a mom who is watching her child fight for her LIFE against cancer. I am a mom who only WISHES that this many people were passionate and willing to donate to childhood cancer funding. I am JUST a mom who can NOT sit quietly anymore and watch HER school and community and teachers be attacked. I am a mom who has REALLY thick skin having a child with cancer will do that to you. If you want to attack me and tell me-“I should be ashamed of myself” or “I am racist”. I can take it. Just know, my family is neither of those things.
Today, and EVERY day, PLEASE stop and look around and just breathe in every single GOOD thing around you. Give THANKS for them. Don’t forget there are people fighting battles some of you could NEVER imagine. Cherish this day.
