To my daughters, a bad day simply means "time out" and a meal without dessert. Bad guys look like Darth Vader and the Joker and they don't know about Adam Lanza or Timothy McVeigh. I fear those conversations are coming one day soon.
Watching the events of this past week has been the most brutal reminder imaginable that not everyone in the world shows up to offer support. Some twisted monsters come simply to destroy, and sadly as a society we can never forget that.
