I’m not going to lie, this has been a tough week, full of heartbreak and unanswered questions all around the country. As a mother of young children I struggle with how to talk to my kids about the horrible things that happen. It’s a delicate balance to make sure they hear about events from me and my husband instead of their friends. I also want to make sure that we tell them is honest and age appropriate. I also need to remember that my job as a parent is to fill my children’s hearts and minds with hope, curiosity and compassion. In the end, I have to rely on my firm belief that this world is full of good people. Good people don’t usually make the headlines; kindness doesn’t sell newspapers or get people to click links, but if what we look for is kindness, we will always find it.
