The recent events in Boston with the bombs have brought back the memories of my home town when it was bombed. It was done the day before (british) Mother's Day. Two young boys lost their lives. The city near me was also ripped apart by a bomb. I was lucky I was not in town when it happened but as a young person it still brought home the cruelty of this world.
As a parent you want to protect your kids from the evil in this world but often you cannot. But I hope as a parent I can show my kids the good in this world. The people who run to help, the people who turn evil into good. I also want to show them God's love and purpose for them. And when things go wrong a soft place to fall.
