“I hope with your love maybe we can change one person at a time to be a better human being. We’ve reached a point in our lives where a lot of people have become more evil then kind. I hope we can come to a point of balance and peace again where love outshines hate, kindness weighs more the hate and where being a good human being is a standard we all expect our children to be. You and all the children out there are the future of the world,” she added.

Sunny pledged to her daughter that she would try “my best to spread your message and restore the kindness we all so desperately need back in our lives”.
