"Find what's wrong, don't ignore it, don't look the other way," Bro said. "Say to yourself, 'What can I do to make a difference?' And that's how you're going to make my child's death worthwhile."
"I want this to spread. I don't want this to die. This is just the beginning of Heather's legacy," she continued.
"Although Heather was a caring, compassionate person, so are a lot of you. A lot of you go that extra mile." GIFs from ABC News/Twitter.
