Maybe not so dreadful
On Friday, I thought lice were dreadful. Now I feel silly about it since hearing about the shooting at my friend's elementary school in Carlsbad. I can't imagine the fear those kids and parents had during those frightening moments. To think that two little girls now have gunshot wounds because of some random act of violence. I know how sensitive my six year old is and I can't imagine having to discuss with him about the bad man who came to school. My friend's 5 year old son had to hide in a bathroom for over an hour with other students and teachers. The teachers were brave and distracted the kids by playing games and telling them it was a long drill when I am sure they, themselves were scared out of their minds. I think my Friday lice report was not so dreadful. Perspective.
