pexels-photo-783200.jpegThere was a bomb scare at my grandchildren’s high school this morning in Maryland. It happened before school started. My daughter was able to reach the kids on their cell phones and told them to turn around and come home. Turns out that it was a hoax, but hoax or not, fear was raised. My grand-kids sat in their car in the school parking lot, having just arrived for school. Their mom’s voice on the phone: “Come home now!” My grandson at the wheel – perhaps a bit numb; fear paralyzing his actions; his sister and a couple of friends along for the ride to school. “Jon, turn around and come home now.”

Can you believe that we’re having this conversation?

To the kids who survived the massacre in Florida: my heart is broken for each soul lost, and for each of the survivors as you face your “next steps”. Please don’t stop talking. Scream it to the rooftops. I believe you may be “the way”. Apparently the grownups who can actually effect change, can’t.

To the NRA – who are you people? WHO ARE YOU PEOPLE?

    Sorry about your grandchildren’s scare. Bomb threats have been around for many years and were scary 50 years ago in the schools, but even more so now when we hear and see so much on the news.

    You’re darn right its scarier now — when you see how easy it is for a young boy, mentally ill, to obtain, and then walk into a school, with a “weapon of war” — the likelihood of a bomb being “real” is no longer such a stretch of the imagination.

    My sentiments EXACTLY, Sue….I’m sooo glad you are speaking out about this..And about the NRA: Once again, I’m afraid it’s all about the “almighty DOLLAR”… What the heck can we do???

      There are some that can do more than others, but for most of us, perhaps it’s a start to speak out, STEP UP! I think the kids are showing us what to do. They don’t quite worship the dollar like so many “grownups” do.

  4. Such a sad state of affairs!
