How Scary

  1. Hubby called a few minutes ago. He's patrolling nights. He said he had to respond to a call from the local highschool. There was some type of sports game going on, and a 12 year old boy brought a gun! Hubby was the first to make the scene...alone... He said he was so scared because the boy was so young and all he could think of is how he would feel if he had to shoot this little boy if the boy fired at him! Oh how scary!

    That is scary! Those events are major stressors for emergency personnel. I'm glad that this incident came to a peaceful conclusion.

    Oh, asoldierswife, what an awful situation for your hubby! It sounds like he's OK though and that's good.

    The violence in school these days (kids bringing guns) is so scary. If we have kids I think I'd really consider homeschooling.

    Again, I'm really thankful that your hubby wasn't hurt, or had to make any horrible decisions.
