The Resilience of Children

The Resilience of Children
Perhaps the only blessing after Friday’s massacre in Connecticut is that kids bounce back better than adults.
I was feeling very sad on Friday afternoon.  Moping my way through the playground at the end of the day, I was stopped by this little boy in his puffy coat, who offered me his bag of juice.
The students at the school where I was teaching were not told of the shooting during the day.  But I’ve always said that kids and horses have a sixth sense for empathy.  And this little boy helped me get through the day.
Thanks, kid.
