A young girl in middle school is inspiring the world with her wise words after an unspeakable tragedy.
Mississippi native Sarah Perry lost her parents in an awful plane crash while they were flying back from a convention in Florida. Just two days after the crash, the young girl took to Facebook to make a vow to her younger siblings. Now, her public message to them is going viral.
Perry wrote, "I don’t know why tragic, horrible things like this happen. But what I do know is that I have aunts, uncles, cousins and grandmothers who will be with me on this journey."
And she is already prepared for what she'll do to help raise her siblings.
"I will be my sister’s Santa Claus and I will be there for my sister when she gets older! I will help my brother with his homework and with any problems he ever has!" she wrote. "I will also help my grandmother who will be raising me for the rest of my life."
She knows it's not going to be easy, but she knows it's what her parents would want.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Sarah and her whole family, and anyone else affected by this tragedy.
