I am saddened by the recent shootings on the Virgina Tech. Campus yesterday. When I heard what happened I cried. I cried for the kids who have not yet ventured out into the world and experienced life. I cried for the families that will never see there loved ones alive again. And I cried at the thought of my kids having to be apart of a world where such acts of violence can happen at any time. I know that other tragic events have happened that I should feel equally sad about but I think because I have kids that will eventually grow up and go off to college this event disturbs me even more. It frightens me that I can not always be there to protect them from the evil and sadness in the world. I can only hold them close and tell them I love them and pray that we never have to go through what these families are going through now.
