parent and teach safe kids

Years ago I sat with my babies on my lap when they finally pulled baby Jessica from the well

on February 2, 2013

Today, I, along with the rest of the nation wait, hoping that the little 5 yr old who was kidnapped off his school bus will be returned to the safety of his family. The atrocities, brought to even the quietest of communities across our nation, by copy cat crazy folks just keep coming.

Three days ago, a man with very bad behavior (remember we do NOT say Stranger / Danger, this is about behavior) killed a school bus driver as he attempted to save the school children on his bus. He then took one child, a five year old boy, to his under ground bunker, from where he is now negotiating with an army of officers above ground.
We wait, we probably second guess with our spouses what could be done….we wait, we pray.

We do need to be vigilant, in our awareness of the members of our communities. Use your intuition, and your powers of observation. Most people are good, going about their lives in a safe and normal fashion. however in every community there are a few people who may suffer from mental illness, and people who seem to live on the very fringe of society. It is your job, when you have concerns, speak up, and keep speaking up until your worries have been relieved.

You may never know the lives you have saved.
