This week marks the 74th school shooting since Newtown made us want to hug our children and never let go. But this blog is not about gun safety or gun-control laws, it is just me taking a breath and asking how did we get here, how do we move forward?
I just can't fathom buying these "blankets" for my boys... I have never once felt fear dropping my son off at Pre-K—and I never want to. Nor do I want Liam to feel worried or fearful in an environment that's filled with love and learning.
Am I sticking my head in the sand? Maybe a little bit. But you know what? If I let that fear in, I don't think I could let it go.
But I do worry.... Is this where we are headed, bullet-proof nap mats? I really hope not, but how did we get here?
