yesterday I got a phone call from S1 at work. "Mom, the warning system has gone off. There has been a report of shots fired at___________. That area has been locked down but I'm fine."
I can't tell you the panic that I felt at first. Indescribable. I told a coworker who also has a child there and called my mom when I got to my car so that she wasn't worrying.
There was nothing on the news so far she said. That brought me back to my senses. I decided to go grocery shopping and talked to S1 while I shopped. Nothing new to report he said. About an hour later I checked email. A forwarded message from our son - some guys had been shooting fireworks at a dumpster was the conclusion of the police.
Idiots. Don't these guys have homework or something more worthwhile to do?!!
