It’s been quiet around here, lately; sorry about that. There’s been so much going on everywhere, that I can’t quite seem to keep up.
The world we live in is changing, and not necessarily for the better. I wonder, some days, how I explain it to my kids. How do I tell them that people want to stop small children fleeing war from coming into the country, simply because of their religion?
How do I tell my kids, when they hear their father and I discussing the news, that some people consider those families a threat, simply because of where they’re from? I resist telling them all the dirty details, because they are children, and I don’t want them to hear about it. And then I think, these refugees are children, and they’ve experienced far more horror than my kids could imagine.
So we strive to find a balance. We try to make sure the kids know and understand what is happening, and what we can do to help, without scaring them. But war, whether you’re in combat or not, is scary. And no child or innocent family should have to live through that, regardless of their faith.
