So much sad across the nation this week. How do we tell our children? How do we explain it all, and help them believe in their own safety?
And as if it wasn't enough to know what happened in Boston, and in West, TX, this afternoon there was a lock down in one of our local schools because of a dangerous fugitive lose in our little rural community, followed by a tornado warning that had me ushering a class of small dancers into an interior room to wait it out.
And I wondered, how much more can these little people take before they break? They're just small sweet innocent souls...they should not have to deal with all of this.
