today's tragic school shooting occurred within a block of my home. In fact, my son and I were driving past as it was swarmed by police, swat and helicopters. Stuck in traffic, we foolishly got out of the car to determine the delay. "Stay in your car. There is a shooter". I hustled my son back in the car. "No-- she didn't say that, buddy. She said 'shoot, there is traffic'". I lied to him...I wasn't ready to change his world. But tonite I am sure we will have a talk. Thankfully, none of my children are of highschool age. I do have a nephew who attends. I picked him up, as his mom couldn't get close enough to the school. I have never witnessed such an awful scene. Hugs your kids. This is a sad world.
