Today's confession is about how worried I am for our children. Right now as I am blogging this my son's school is on lock down for the second time in two weeks. I don't understand what is going on with the parenting these days. I sit here helpless because no one will answer the phone at his school. I know for the moment my child is safe because he sent me a text. But still they have streets blocked choppers flying over and there is an ambulance at his school. I hear the police sirens and I cannot do a thing! Why does it have to come to this? Why are these children. Our children in a state where they think violence is ok?!!! I send my child to a school that is rated one of the top schools in the area for their grading. But does that matter anymore. When I am always worried about his safety? The police don't tell you anything. The staff ignores the calls and us parents stand watch and wait for some sign. Some sign that our child is ok! Then they send you a sorry excuse for an explanation of what happened. Even though they won't tell you how extreme it was. Last time I was in my home helpless and crying for almost three hours not knowing if my son was safe. There was a child claiming he had brought a gun to shoot some people. This child was only 12. I of course did not get this from the school. But from the news and my own son! I ask you all to take the time today and pray for our children. Pray for the parents who can't control them. Pray that each day your child leaves your sight. He or she will return home safe!
