As details continue to emerge about last week’s shooting at Nashville’s Covenant Christian School, so has a celebrity’s account of the events surrounding that horrific morning of Monday, March 27th. Actress Melissa Joan Hart, who lit up TVs during the 90s on Clarissa Explains It All and Sabrina the Teenage Witch, revealed last week on Instagram that she and her husband Mark Wilkerson were driving by the school when they saw children fleeing. Realizing something was wrong, they jumped into action.
Melissa Joan Hart Details Helping Kindergarteners Fleeing The Covenant School
Hart tearfully explained that she and Wilkerson happened to be on the way to parent-teacher conferences at their three sons’ nearby school when they saw the frantic children running, so they got out of the car and began to help.
“We helped a class of kindergartners across a busy highway. They were climbing out of the woods. They were trying to escape the shooter situation at their school,” Hart said tearfully on her Instagram video. “So we helped all these tiny little kids cross the road and get (to) their teachers.” She went on to say that they also helped a mom reunite with her children.
Hart then added, “I don’t just don’t know what to say anymore. Enough is enough. And just pray. Pray for the families.”
The video starts out by explaining that Hart’s family, which includes teenage sons Mason and Braydon and ten-year-old Tucker, relocated to Tennessee from Connecticut, and that they were living nearby almost ten years ago when the Sandy Hook school shooting took place, killing fourteen children and six adults.
“So this is our second experience with a school shooting with our kids being in close proximity,” she explained. “Luckily, we are all OK.”
