Alyssa Alhadeff, 14
Alyssa Alhadeff's mother, Lori Alhadeff, remembered her daughter as a skilled soccer player who was a member of Parkland Travel Soccer.
"My daughter Alyssa was killed today by a horrific act of violence. I just sent her to school and she was shot and killed. Alyssa was a talented soccer player, so smart, an amazing personality, incredible creative writer, and all she had to offer the world was love. She believed in people for being so honest. A knife is stabbed in my heart," the grieving mom shared in a Facebook post Wednesday. "I wish I could have taken those bullets for you. I will always love you and your memory will live on forever. Please kiss your children, tell them you love them, stand by them no matter what they want to be. To Alyssa's Friends honor Alyssa by doing something fabulous in your life. Don't ever give up and inspire for greatness. Live for Alyssa! Be her voice and breathe for her. Alyssa loved you all forever!"
