I am a mum of teens.
I love adventure. I love life. I love people. Laughter. Music.
I encourage independence and adventure seeking spirit in my kids.
As I write, I reflect on a bomb, at a concert filled with teens.
No one should not come home from a concert. Ever.
No parent should stand outside a stadium waiting for their child, for them not to come home.
My heart breaks for these people. I can’t imagine the fear and the pain.
Hatred and bombs do not bring peace.
Wars won’t stop the bombs and the terror.
People demonstrating kindness and love for strangers, offering refuge, a safe place, a ride home, a hand up, a smile. Stick together people. Love each other. Take care of one another.
I pray for Manchester. I pray for all our futures and I pray for peace.
I pray for tolerance and love.
I pray for strength for families who lost loved ones. Children, parents.
This world is still a beautiful place, filled with wonderful people. I believe in peace. Love. Adventures. Choose to see the good in the world.
