I am Auntie to these 2 wonderful girls, Mya Joy and Kyra. I am so proud of them for starting their own business to make their own hair accessories. This gives them safe hair accessories that they can wear and they are also selling them so other little girls can have safe hair accessories too. (IF THEY CAN MAKE SAFE HAIR ACCESSORIES, THEN WHY CAN’T CHINA DO IT?!) Everyone wants any little girl they have in their life to be safe and not to have to worry about them getting a brain injury from a hair accessory. So kudos to you girls for all of your hard work!!!
My brother, Armon Bartlett, and Tristen started a non-profit organization called Light of Joy Awareness (http://lightofjoyawareness.com/) to help raise money and awareness about brain injuries and also to share their story in the hopes that no other parents will go through what they went through.
I am appalled and outraged at all the negative comments people posted about this story! Some of the comments left are from people who claim to live in Armon’s own neighborhood in NC. These are ignorant people who think they know Armon and his family but they really don’t know them at all or else they wouldn’t say these terrible things that aren’t true. People are so ignorant!! (Some people are confusing the non-profit organization called Light of Joy Awareness with the for-profit business called Safer Hair Accessories so they think my brother used money from the non-profit to send the girls to camp but that is not what happened. Again, people not knowing what they’re talking about and jumping to wrong conclusions.)
I’m not going to refute every ridiculous comment made by these mean people because they don’t deserve to be dignified with an answer. People are going to believe what they want to believe and I doubt I could persuade them to change their closed minds by something like facts and the truth. But myself and my family know the truth and that’s all that matters. In the end it doesn’t matter what other people think. But to all the people putting their nasty comments on here: SHAME ON YOU for commenting on a story when you don’t even know what you’re talking about!!! Didn’t your parents teach you any manners?! If you don’t have anything nice to say then you shouldn’t say anything at all! So keep all your nasty comments to yourself…no one else wants to hear them!
