  • These are daily words of my 12-year-old daughter. She ate another meal and didn't die. She went to school and didn't die. She went in a grocery store and didn't die. When she says, "I didn't die," it's a factual statement where she is expressing that she made it yet another moment in another day. Everyday is one of fear due to my daughter's immune system responding incorrectly. Her body misinterprets egg protein as a foreign attacker and goes into anaphylaxis shock where her organs shut down and she quits breathing.

Forty-five minutes after shots were fired at President John F. Kennedy’s motorcade in Dealey Plaza, Officer Tippit was shot and killed by Lee Harvey Oswald while attempting to question him on the street.
