Last quote by Susan Bro

I think the reason that what happened to Heather has struck a chord is because we know that what she did is achievable. We don't all have to die. We don't all have to sacrifice our lives. They tried to kill my child to shut her up. Well, guess what? You just magnified her.feedback

Susan Bro quotes

Aug 27 2017

I cried most of the way from Charlottesville to Atlanta. Just very quietly, tears rolling down. There was nothing to distract me. But when I'm focused on the foundation, then I'm kind of in a business mode and that gets me through because not only am I fulfilling her vision, I'm distracted from the grief.feedback

She'd get so frustrated with me. She'd want to throw a gum wrapper out the window as a kid and I'd say, No. We don't do that.' She'd be like, Mom, it's okay.' I'd say, No. We don't do that. I don't care what other people do. If we know it's wrong, we don't do it.' That's just how I was brought up. It's basic values, in my mind. She took it even further than I could have imagined. She carried it on to her fellow man, and I'm so proud of her for that.feedback

My husband is on disability, so we had a discussion about if we could make it financially if I quit. I think we'll take just a small chunk of her money and pay off one loan and then we can live pretty modestly. We're not big into material possessions anyway so I feel comfortable then that I can devote my energy and time to the foundation.feedback

I'm not talking to the president now. I'm sorry. After what he said about my child. And it's not that I saw somebody else's tweets about him. I saw an actual clip of him at a press conference equating the protesters like Ms. Heyer with the KKK and the white supremacists.feedback

I'm honestly a little embarrassed to say that part of the reason Heather got so much attention is because she's white and she stood up for black people. Isn't that a shame? That a white person standing up for a black person caused all this excitement? That should be an everyday thing, that should be a norm.feedback

Here's what I want to happen. You ask me, What can I do?' So many people … I want this to spread. I don't want this to die. This is just the beginning of Heather's legacy – this is not the end of Heather's legacy. You need to find in your heart that small spark of accountability. What is there I can do to make the world a better place? What injustice do I see?' … You poke that finger at yourself like Heather would have done. You take that extra step. You find a way to make a difference in the world.feedback
