Kevin Conboy was backing out of his driveway for a midday burrito run with a friend when he heard the sirens.
That’s when what Conboy calls “initial parent paranoia” set in.
“Are you ok” Conboy texted his high-schooler son, Ian, at 12:48 p.m. Friday, at first fearing not a shooting but something awry with his diabetic son’s health.
What followed was a remarkable string of 70 more texts, displaying remarkable calm and the bond between a father and son amid a crisis that made national headlines.
A story with such a great ending is very rare during these events, so please share with others!
