This morning I walked by the local middle school. All the kids were standing outside. My mind quickly thought of all the school shootings that have happened over the years. I started worrying that something had happened along those lines at that school. I asked the kids what was happening. A teacher replied, “Fire drill.”
I responded, “Thank Heaven it was only that.”
The old Chinese curse says “May you live in interesting times.” I don’t think they can get any more interesting.
