About this Discussion

Parents are reeling from acts of violence in schools. This conversation was hosted following the Uvalde, Texas incident and we were thinking about those families who lost young ones attending school where they should be safe. Sadly this scenario has been repeated too many times since. You may be feeling overwhelmed with fear, sinking into despair, totally disconnected as losses mount up, or shifting among all of these sensations. At the same time, you may be finding it nearly impossible to drop your child off at school but want to protect them from fear. Coming together with others and sharing our experiences is one piece of repairing these emotional injuries.
