  • Because even when we do our best to protect you, it's not ever 100%. It's not fair. The world isn't all sweetness and innocence, even if you are. Because I can't find words, other than I'm so, so sorry. And I wish I was close enough to hug you and hug your mom. And we all love you so much. And anyone who doesn't can go to hell.

    Because of that, we will teach you to be strong. We will teach you that it's okay to fight back. We will love you even more. We will help you to let your sweetness outshine sorrow.
