Some kids who may or may not belong to me were playing school at home this morning. I heard this;
“What’s 6 + 6”?
I heard this; “What is 16 X 32? Kidding. What is 2 + 2? What, you said, 4? FANTASTIC! How did you ever get that answer!!”
But when I really listened I heard this;
“Time for the lockdown drill. Remember to get down on the floor as low as you can and hide. Stay very quiet.”
I’m not sure if I should be happy that they are prepared for the worst-case scenario, or sad that this is what they have to do in order to stay safe in school…
Granted, we did these types of drills in the 80’s should there be a nuclear attack…
That was sad too.
Can’t we all just get along!
