Hesitant to wanting my kids going

I feel hesitant in wanting my kids to attend school this next week before Christmas break... I still have such a heavy heart and I cannot imagine dropping off my sweet kids and getting a phone call or anything of the sort saying you'll never see them again... When in the morning you wave at them, smile, give hugs and kisses and still my heart will not want to let them go :(

I dont, I want my son to have a fun holiday party with his friends, go on his field trip to the seniors home to visit those without family etc. I dont want to deprive him of his childhood out of fear

I can understand that fear.  I'd probably a bit nervous too if my kids were in school.

I remember the day after the VT shooting I went with friend up to Chicago. We went to a Cub game at Wrigley. I honestly was SO afraid some crazy guy might come into the stadium and shoot people. I know it might sound silly but i think after a horrible tragedy like what happened in CT it does cross ones mind.

I think you're right... A horrible tragedy just brings those "what if" fears front and center.

They will go and enjoy school this last week before break but it doesn't mean my heart isn't still heavy and feels that hesitation.

Honestly I don't think there is anything wrong with a bit of fear as long as it doesnt' control you. I think it's normal for a lot of people to feel this way.
