Harris wrote on Facebook before WAFB shared the image: This morning I’m feeling nervous and a little unsure but thankful, I pray for my children on their first day of school. God, I give them to you. And I ask that this school year you would use every person and every experience and every lesson to shape them into Your image, to grow in them, the fruit of Your Spirit.

What you can’t see in the photo is that the Harris family lost their apartment the day before, and Jamisha and her husband recently lost their jobs. Harris told:

“It has been very hard for all of us, And with all the tragedies events that have been occurring in the world lately, I feel nothing is safe for my children and we are praying because I am sending my children into this wicked world and mommy is not there to protect them.”
