where does the innocence go?

…it really hits home the day your child tells you about school security drills….

BC came home from school the other day and told me that they had practiced tornado drills and security drills. “what do you do for tornado drills, I asked. “oh, we go into our cubbies and smush ourselves in. it’s lots of fun!” she squealed, reminding me for a moment of that wonderful WWII movie Hope and Glory.

“what do you do for security drills, sweetheart?” i asked.

“we run into the classroom, lock the door, and put something over the door window so the bad person can’t see us or get into our classroom.”

we never had to do that growing up.
