Just Jot It Jan : Suffer Little Children

CRACK! Crash, Silence a  shot in the dark

No pleasant, fun walk in the park

Everyone fell to their knees

Those who can get up , flee

Stay still and quiet

Pray they will go

Who can know

Why they

    Sad but true.

      Yes it is . Jewish children in London schools are being taught what to do in the event of a gun man. Sadly no one of any or no faith is really safe right now.

    Most schools here have taught evasive skills/survival skills for over 10 years.
    Kids should feel safe in school.
    The world is truly gone mad.
    (Your picture reminded me of much earlier times- the JFK-Cuban Crisis. We were taught the duck and cover drills then.
    Also about that same time we kids were unsettled by a man who walked onto the elementary playground of Poe Elm. and blew himself up along with his son, teachers and janitor trying to stop him…and little kids.
    Different times, same danger: the hearts and souls of mankind. Somehow there has to be a change – violence must be diffused – or we just live it over and over.

      Yes why do we do that, live things over and over? Nothing ever improves nothing ever gets better. Yes there is slim hope for the future. The children in the photo are modern day children sadly bang up to date. I used the American turn of phrase “Duck and Cover” Taken from the Bay of Pigs scare. I am so saddened the list of schools under attack grows, the list of atrosities of all kinds from around the world jus grows. I do pray there will be a change, I do pray! xx

    When I Was in elementary school, it was the Cold War. We were told to get under our desks. I asked what the desks would do. The teacher was appalled that I was asked. I was told to be quiet. I did with effort, but I knew none of us were safe. Hugs, Barbara
