    Text - KIT working on SDCC2019 cosplay @FoxfireAnomaly Replying to @smtravis and 2 others At first, I thought this was cute. Then the reality of having multiple therapies dogs at a gun violence-hit school so common that they are in the yearbook hit me. 169 4:34 AM - May 16, 2019 15 people are talking about this
