I was shocked, angry, sad and scared today when I heard about the bombs that went off. The death of anyone during any kind of attack is horrific, but even more disturbed when you hear that one of the victim’s was an 8 year old! I have an 8 year old and I am so upset that an experience for anyone let alone a child had to end this way!
Now they are speaking of increasing security at public events and although I don’t disagree, will this really solve the problem we face today. Will these maniacs just go to schools/malls/bus stations/parks/gyms…I mean where will be safe.
What is the solution??? Can I draw back to parenting and instilling value’s, help for those that are mentally ill or cry that those that do not embrace and prove to really want to live in our country prove it before arriving?
Hate is all around us and I know this is not the last we will hear of something like this….I leave on this thought:
Just be the change, do what you can, when you can….be better than that! And whenever possible DON’T be that bystander oblivious…pay ATTENTION be present. Perhaps one of us can stop something like this the next time.
