Recently there has been an aching inside me for the country and world in which we live. Just this morning, like too many days recently, our News Sources were flooded with reports of the latest overnight shooting and other acts of violence. It is discouraging and even scary because it seems that violence and malice are running ramped throughout our streets, cities and nations. It's fearful to walk out of the house knowing that violence could occur right where you live or to travel the world rarely feeling completely safe. As a teacher, I worry for our children and their hearts.
It is terrifying for our neighborhoods, schools, and cities and it is fearful for our future.
