The shock of what happened at the Boston Marathon is starting to subside. I’m not so sure about the fear aspect.
Just when we recover from one tragedy, another happens. So many people say they’re becoming fearful of attending big events or large gatherings of people.
It’s hard not to be afraid. But if we live in fear, the bad guys win and we teach our kids to live in fear. Our kids watch us very closely. If they see us anxious, stressed and scared, then that’s what they’ll be.
There were so many people rushing in to help after the explosions. In times of need, we are a nation of heroes and helpers. We stand together stronger than ever and we don’t stop living.
That’s what I want my kids to see.
