I had a different #tbt planned, but once again my plans were thwarted by current events–this time at a High School in Florida where, as it stands now, seventeen people have lost their lives.
It is not OK. We are failing. Please read through the full link–particularly parents who want to find a way forward in your conversation with your children. While the event in Florida is a school shooting, not a terrorist attack, it is yet another mass killing.
I repost this recognizing these events are not at all parallel except that they represent stunning loss of life and that they present a unique challenge for parents and adults in lives of children.
