As I was heading out today, I saw a mom dropping her kid off at school. They hugged tightly and she sat, waiting patiently, much to the displeasure of the cars lined up behind her, all the while blowing kisses and waving with a warm smile, as her child approached the double doors and even after they had gone inside, for a few moments longer.
It got me to wondering.
The way things are today, with all the uncertainties, terrorism, and school bullies.. do parents cringe inside themselves, as they send their child off to school? Do they fear that schools can no longer keep their children safe?
Do they wonder and worry, if they will ever see them again? Does a mother’s heart, break every single time her child leaves the car, hoping and praying, not my child.. not this school?
In light of all the recent events, such as those poor, sweet children, at Sandy Hook being massacred in that elementary school, how does a parent feel, as their child heads off every morning, towards an uncertain future in a bleak and quickly failing world?
Please weigh in and share your thoughts with me. Inquiring minds want to know..
