  • I thought about it, but didn't. It's going to be really hard to send them back Monday.

  • Yes. But only about 25 minutes before her school lets out. I'm in FL

  • No I didn't. On a way to a meeting at a local high school we did pass our younger kids' school and there was definitely a larger police presence.

    And then we got treated to a lock down at the school as there were shots fired in that neighborhood.

    My heart goes out to those in Newtown.

  • I almost did....I even got in the truck, but changed my mind. I couldn't think of a valid reason other than I was being a paranoid neurotic.

  • My kids are grown so I didnt have that worry, but I might have... Im not sure. Not to protect them so much as just to comfort myself....

  • It would only have confused or frightened him over something I would prefer he know as little of as possible.
