School Lockdown

   While sitting in the Doctor's office this morning I got a text message from my nephew. The message read as follow, "We're on lockdown, they're been a bomb threat and someone said they're coming shoot up the school." My son attends the same school and didn't have his cell phone so I was unable to get in touch with him so I began to panic. I told my nephew that I was coming get them immediately. That wouldn't happen because they would not allow anyone to come in or leave the school. They were all locked in where ever they were when the threat came through. I then got a call from my Mom who works at the local elementary school. They were on lockdown as well, the person apparently made the threats towards all the local school. So here I am sitting in my vehicle feeling helpless. Three of my children seemingly in harms way and there wasn't anything I could do about it but pray. After a few hours the kids were dismissed and I was able to go get them. Imagine the relief I felt...Thank God for they're safe return home.
