    I don't know if I could send them to school tomorrow (we're out here, mostly) or not. I don't think I could.

    My level of anxious is pretty high right now. I cannot imagine how parents feel.

      Friday was his last day at a local mom-and-pop daycare center that had zero security---no locked door, no buzzer system, id, receptionist.  Anyone can walk in off the street and go right to the kids.

      We were forced to go with this place because a better, more secure center had no open slots.

      Luckily there was an opening last month and we decided to put our son in at the start of the new year.

      Friday was his last day at the old unsecure place and I nearly left work early and drove 90 miles to retrieve him early.

      Irrational?  I suppose.  But that's how terrorism works.

      •  Sandy Hook had a secure entryway. (0+ / 0-)

        But a guy with a gun has no problem getting through any security zone. Door locks are not an issue for .223 rifles or Glocks or whatever. Once our kids are in a school that is targeted by one of these madman, I don't think that security matters at all.
