My heart is breaking for Makayla Woodard’s family. The tragic event that happend on Wednesday will forever be imbedded in our hearts. I wish there was something, anything we could do to fix this, to go back in time and change the circumstances. But in this tragedy, I am so grateful for the Waxhaw Police Department, EMT and WVFD. We have incredible first responders who have to do things most of us can not even imagine. That was the case this week. To those of you on the scene of this horrific event, even though it doesn’t feel like it, you are heroes. You give so much of yourselves for all of us. You do things and deal with things most of us simply can not. I am so grateful for that and for everything you do. Thank you.
