Another sad day today. Today I've been thinking about how I'm going to discuss this with my kids. The other day we were thinking about taking our kids to a movie, and they both said they were scared of somebody shooting them. Seems like our kids are growing up in a world where they have to be scared all the time.
It's all changed so much since we were kids. When I was 9, my parents put me on a Greyhound bus alone for 6 hours to go visit my cousin. Later, as teenagers, we'd drive over to the airport and wander around just watching people and the planes take off. You could walk right up to the gate without a ticket or even a good reason to be there. Nothing like either of those could happen today.
I don't know if we were actually safer back then, but I know we weren't as scared as my kids are now. I hope it's not always this way.
