Mommy Confessions: The Big Scary World

I don't mean for this post to be a downer but given the tragedy that happened over Memorial Day weekend I just had to write something down.  The incident that happened at Isla Vista reminded me of Sandyhook Elementary and I felt like crying for all the victims who lost their lives, for their families and friends who lost someone precious. Why do people take their rage out on the innocent?

It's a scary world out there and I hope nothing like what happened over the holidays ever happens to my daughter or anyone else.  I can't imagine the grief the parents are going through.  I don't know how I could ever move on if anything like that happened to Jellybean.  I want my children to live good, long lives!

I believe every person is someone else's miracle.  If everyone believed that, maybe there would be a shot at world peace.  Maybe?  What do you think?

  1. There is so much news to absorb on any given day (although 95% of it is the same but on different channels) so I would say that being optimistic is not foolish. But changing the world starts on the individual level by the individual.

    Hope is what drives the next footstep. Keep walking and don't be afraid to run every now and then because that can be healthy too.
