Let’s talk about lock downs.
My four grandchildren came home (Thursday) after the Nikiski schools locked down. Why there was a lock down isn’t important.
I asked them if they were frightened during that time. As expected, fear is repressed and in spite of the games they played and the engaging conversations they had, they all said yes, they were afraid. Now I wondered why. Why are my grandchildren frightened during a school lock down?
Fear is natural and has a good purpose. It makes us do the right things to protect ourselves.
