No parents should ever have to listen to this. No child should ever have to learn it. But this is the world we live in, and no matter how uncomfortable it is, we need to do what we can to keep them safe.
This is Littlest, my baby, explaining what to do if an active shooter comes to her school. I took this video, praised her for being such a great learner, excused myself, and cried.
Mercedes, I understand your tears children should not have to know what to do in the case of an active shooter but in our current reality it is a good thing that they do. Hopefully it will save lives. Hugs, AA
