I’ve been putting my thoughts together about going into the ditch in SD. There’s actually quite a bit more that happened after I wrote my last post, but I’ve had so much going on I haven’t gotten it put up on here yet. However, in the midst of all my drama, there was this whole nightmare that took place in Connecticut.
This is definitely one of those times that I’m glad I don’t have kids. I can’t imagine what the parents who’ve lost their babies are going through, and I can’t imagine what it must be like to have a child and try to decide how to attempt to keep your child safe. I’m not sure if the world has just been progressively getting more scary, or if it was always so scary and it’s just getting harder to hide how scary it is. If there’s one thing I learned from Finding Nemo, it’s that you can’t protect your kids from everything, and to promise them that you will is just lying to them. However, I don’t blame parents for wanting to protect their kids. There’s something wrong with someone if they don’t want to protect their kids.
Anyway, I’m still grouping my thoughts, but for now my prayers are with all the families who lost their children, all the families who are directly involved in that nightmare, all those who lost friends, and all those kids who had part of their innocence so senselessly ripped away.
