"Anybody else want to hide their children in a bunker...until Jesus returns?"
That quote comes from a friend of mine on facebook Monday afternoon and I can't help but kind of agree with her ~although maybe I think she is being a little extreme.
In the past, I've had what you all have said were eloquent or well thought out words regarding some of the tragedies that have befallen our nation. I told you how I felt about Newtown both as a teacher and a friend of someone who was affected. I have not told my 9-11 story, because I started this blog so long after it happened, but I have one, because my then husband worked just 20 minutes from the city on that day.
This time I am at loss for words and I find myself floundering and wondering,
"What is this world coming to?"
And I want to sweep my children up and carry them off and keep them safe, because it doesn't feel like they are safe anywhere.
They cannot fly safely on a plane.
Or go safely to school.
And now they cannot even run down the street safely.
It's not even just tragedies like this.
It's bickering over religion.
And I worry and wonder if we are all going to be okay.
