Melissa Joan Hart shared an emotional post detailing how she helped children flee the Nashville mass shooter as she was near the scene of the tragedy. She said, “For those that know I live in Nashville … my kids go to school right next to a school where there was a shooting today.” The actor revealed this was the second time she and her family have dealt with a mass shooting close to home, as they once lived near Sandy Hook.
Hart was thankful that her family has remained safe in both instances, but reality hit when she helped assist young children to evade the Nashville shooter. She said, “We helped a class of kindergartners across a busy highway that were climbing out of the woods, that were trying to escape the shooter situation at their school.” Hart was in a position no one ever wants to be in, and it made the actor teary-eyed to think about it. She shared, “We helped all these tiny little … kids cross the road and get their teachers over there, and we helped a mom reunite with her children.”
Hart assisted in any way she could but is frustrated by the continuous loss of life due to gun violence. She said, “I don’t know what to say anymore. It’s just enough is enough.” Through her mixed emotions, she ended the video by asking followers to pray for the families of the tragedy.
