MARCH 25th March for our Lives!
Another school shooting!
17 dead and many other survivors living with horrific memories of seeing their friends being shot down so callously…….over nothing!
Florida school shooting is a reminder of what’s wrong with our world today and how we adults are continuously failing our children …..both the ones who are killing and the others who are being killed. Sadly not all homes and schools are a safe heaven for their kids. Many mental health problems are a little too often, a by product of unhappy and frustrated lives, not so good parenting and broken homes.And tragedies like school shootings are somewhat predictable because they are most often coupled with mental health issues and easy access to guns.
There were loads of red flags which were ignored in this case too. Cruz, the Parkland shooter is an orphan who was abusive to his adoptive single mother, was booked before for cruelty towards animals…

We don’t talk about possibility of disasters with our kids ….we don’t consciously speak about resilience. We believe in giving a beautiful life to them , we feel children should be kept away from seeing pain and suffering in this world. We try our hardest to show the beautiful side of things to them. We feel that they won’t have a choice but to see a lot of it that is not okay with this world , once they grow up. While that is the way precious little ones should be brought up ….with loads of love, lots of sheltering and protecting, by parents being a shield for them, a filter to sieve through the painful experiences and keeping the toxic environment miles away…
