Sick to my stomach...

about all of the violence that is going on right now. It is so sad and horrifying to see all of the stuff on the news about the Virginia Tech killings. Makes me wonder about the world that we are living in and that we are raising our children in. How do people end up this way? Why do they do what they do?

It is disgusting to me. How are you supposed to feel safe in this society. How can you live without fear? I am always worried that something is going to happen to the people that I love. It has gotten way worse since I had children. Unbelievable...People killing each other "just because". Sick...

Then I hear this....2 of the high schools in my area have had bomb threats in the past couple days. The high school where I graduated from (and the school district that Christian goes to preschool and that we are moving back to) had writing on the bathroom wall and a note threatening a bomb for tomorrow (Thursday). Parents were already given the option to have their children stay home from school tomorrow. My mom also drives a school bus for that district and I am worried about her. What if....ya know?

The second high school that had a bomb threat is literally at the top of my road. 4 houses away from ours. :( I just heard this about 5 minutes ago and I am SICK.... This threat mentions tomorrow as a date as well. They have tightened security, cancelled all school activities and have a lockdown search today at 4:00 to check the entire school and tomorrow there is a ban on backpacks as well as a search on every student when they get there. I am SICK to my stomach. :( Anyways, sorry for the bummer of a post. I just needed to get it off my chest.

Lighter note...

We are all starting to feel better finally. Thank goodness!!! Also....
