When I feel overwhelmed by events of pure evil and stupidity, I can only ask for love and healing. Not so much for myself, but those made victims of someone else’s actions. The world must look like a pretty scary place to the children growing up more than it did when I was a child. I grew up during the Cold War with doing the drill of hiding under our desks for a nuclear attack protection. Little did we know it would not really help us, but it made us feel like we had a little more control over what happened to us. About all we can do is tell our kids to be alert and aware of their surroundings and people acting strangely. It won’t really help them if someone takes a notion to hurt them or others around them. It may make them feel better though. Fear is about lack of control over our environment. Given tools, they will at least have something to use to help themselves. First Aid classes are a great way to help that feeling of being able to do something to help them. Just a thought. :o)
