An excerpt from a heart-warming article I read today:
A teacher was asked by a high school student what to do if a shooter came into their classroom:
“I want you to know that I care deeply about each and every one of you and that I will do everything I can to protect you,” she relayed to them. “But – being in a wheelchair, I will not be able to protect you the way an able-bodied teacher will. And if there is a chance for you to escape, I want you to go. Do not worry about me. Your safety is my number one priority.”
Absolutely heartbreaking and a testament to the kind of truly selfless educator she is, no doubt. But her students had a plan of their own. The class remained quiet for a moment, then a single student raised her hand.
She said, “Mrs. Schimmoeller, we already talked about it. If anything happens, we are going to carry you.”

It breaks my heart that these children ever have to think of this scenario but it also warms my heart that they were thinking this way.
It is bittersweet indeed, Quiall.
chills and so much love.
Me too. Thankfully, I’ve never experienced too much love.
Thankfully It often does.
