Day 207: What's Going On?

Ugh, I'm so sad and anxious tonight. On the heels of so many tragic losses of young people in our community, today I have heard more stories about challenges with freinds' children then my heart can process.

No matter what the issue, school, mental illness, sickness when your child is hurting your world is turned upside down. If an adult is sick your heart aches too, but not the same way as when it is a child. Our children are suppose to skip through life healthy and happy and we do everything possible to ensure no tragedy crosses their path. It's an impossible task even for the best of parents.

All you have to do is watch the news, or read the newspaper to know how terrible children's lives around the world are, breaks your heart that that level of pain and suffering exists. You pray it never enters your world, but it does. Pain, illness, sickness have no boundaries and all our children are susceptible to these ailments.

I remember two years ago when my son's pal was diagnosed with Leukemia. We were all devastated. How could a young boy just 13 years old have cancer? While my rational brain knows this happens everyday, until it personally touches you or your family, you don't want to beleive it happens.

I just have such a heavy heart. I want all the problems to go away. I want all the children to be healthy.
