Tragedy And Madness...I'm convinced there is not a pile of dead bodies high enough or young enough that will move forward any attempt to stop the bleeding. We will briefly talk about it and succumb to the status quo. I am ashamed to live in a society that is so violent now that our most cherished are helplessly subjected to slaughter. I see no end to it. I grieve terribly tonight. I am as sick at my stomach as I have ever been. How can we look our children in the eyes and tell them it's going to be OK? How can we tell them they are safe? We simply can't. I weep for our future.
As the world turns to madness I feel we have a duty as parents to listen. We need to have open communication with our children and not shelter them from "their" world.(as much as we would all love to).I believe that it is our duty to prepare them for the world they live in now. Though it may be foreign to us. We need to educate ourselves as well as them for the safety and well being of all of those around us. We may not always be able to keep them safe. But we can educate and prepare them to be safer. To adapt to the madness of the world they have been left.
