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.
Love,
Ramona Bishop
