Thoughts on the news

August 20, 2011

In the world we live in, we can not let our kids out of your sight for a moment, because bad people lie in wait everywhere, even on the normal childhood event of a short walk to school.

In the world we live in, we can not meet someone and assume he is a normal person, because he could very well convince us to go to Aruba, have kinky sex, take out accidental death insurance and kill us for the insurance money.

In the world we live in, we must think twice about how we treat our troubled teen, because he could come in one night and kill us.

What do you tell your kids about the world we live in?

What do you tell yourself?

    None of the things you just wrote about. That is so sad. 🙁

    I live my life out loud an proud! I flew in helicopters shooting video from them (no one survives a helicopter crash)I went to Cuba as an illegal journalist to cover rafters leaving (can you say prison time baby) I video taped in a riot you name it. I am not afraid of anyone or anything I am pretty fearless!

    I would tell children to be smart…to keep their eyes open but not to stop living their lives. I would teach them to be resourceful and aware, how to live in a jungle like I did for a month in an Army tent. 🙂 I would show them how fun and beautiful and truly amazing the planet is and almost ALL of the people in it. Then I would let them live their lives…the same way our parents let us live ours. I would do the paying attention and worrying for them I would NOT teach them to be fearful of EVERYTHING. 🙁
