We have 3 sons who are career army soldiers who have served in 13 deployments. Michael served his country, his state, and his students. Who could have ever imagined he would give his life in what should have been the most peaceful place he served. He is one of the greatest heros in our state. I truly hope the honor his name by renaming the school after him. God Bless Him and all His Family for their loss, May we never forget him. Love and prayers.

I am active duty Air Force currently in specialized training for my job in law enforcement.

I had heard about Sgt. Landsberry when the news of Sparks broke out, and my heart sank (yet was very proud of his heroic actions) when I heard of his passing. I never knew him, but I did lose a Brother in Arms. That's enough for me to mourn.

Well, it's a week later and I'm working on some speaking topics for this class, and discovered an article on Sgt Landsberry which included his military history. My eyes watered up. Looking at his life and everything he was trying to accomplish - which seemed to mirror my own life and ambitions (military brat; active duty; deployments) - there was a very profound connection; and I even more now consider this man a hero even more beyond measure than I first thought.

I too want to be a First Sergeant and believe in the power of mentorship and education. So to see that this man was working towards those goals and had dedicated a lifetime of service to not just his country but to educating the youth of America? Damn... He's the man, seriously.

I will remember his story. If anything, it has lit a new fire within to ensure that I continue serving to the utmost of my ability; to make sure I work towards making a positive difference in this generation and future generations of Airmen. But that's not just for me; it's going to be for all those guys before me doing their thing. For guys like Sgt Landsberry. I want to make men like him proud.

Dear Michael Landsberry,
On October 21st 2013 I heard the news of a shooting at my daughters school. I was in a complete panic. I couldnt breathe.My mind was racing as I got dressed. Rushing to the school, all I could think of was my daughter and if she was ok. She had just made me a bracelet and I couldnt help but think in fleeting moments,"Was this the last gift I would ever get from her?"
When I got to the high school, where we were told to wait for our children to be delivered back to us, there was a crowd of paniced parents, a media frenzy,and police directing people where to go.We soon heard that there was one teacher dead,a student dead,and 2 other students injured. The panic turned into pure terror for me and others.

Minutes felt like hours. The tears kept flowing and I couldnt even find the strength to text a friend or family about what was going on. My entire body was shaking in fear. Though parents hugged one another,I still found no comfort in the support that so many tried to give me. I still couldnt breathe!

Finally the news came that, if your child was injured, you would have been informed by now. A slight bit of relief but not enough to feel comfort. It wasnt until I saw my girl that I took my first real breath of air and felt the comfort that I was longing for. She means everything to me!

Mr. Landsberry, I owe you a debt that I can not possibly pay you for, even if you were still here with us all. If you wouldnt have intervened on this day, who knows how many more teachers or students would have been hurt or even killed.
Until October 21st 2013 I did not have the opperunity to know you,like so many others did. You weren't an aquaintance of mine and I didnt even know your name.We had no connections what so ever.
My daughter goes to Sparks Middle School.You were not her Teacher and she did not know you either.
We dont have memories of you( like so very many people have shared since your death)to share. You were a complete stranger to me and my family. You owed me nothing and yet gave to me the best gift ever, The life of my daughter. I can only say,"Thank you" and know that even though you gave everyone you knew the gift of your presence and friendship for their memories, you gave me, (a complete stranger), the gift of my daughters life and her coming back home to me, so she can give me the same gift of memories that all your friends and family, have of you. I hold you forever in my heart with great honor and thanks.
