Brave girls

This story broke me. I loved Girl Scouts. I loved the badges and the outings. Amerie Jo Marie was a girl Scout from Uvalde, Texas. She was killed at school in a country that doesn’t know which end is up. The Girl Scouts of America posthumously awarded her the Bronze Cross. I didn’t know about the Bronze Cross, and it crushes me to think of children in a position to earn awards like this one. But she was, and she did – for putting her own life in danger to save or try to save others.
