I was thinking about how upset I was when I found out the shooter is going to be released.
How in the world would they let that happen to my kids?
All of the evidence was right there.
As I was driving home, I was trying to create the ‘perfect’ words to tell the kids.
I don’t want to blindside them at court, so I might as well tell them we are screwed right now.
Then I thought about when I give them this information would I be considered the villain or victim.
Telling them this information in an angry tone, with sadness and crying could be portrayed as a victim.
If I tell them in a way that they should just allow the justice system to be what it is and there is nothing we were going to do about it. I could be portrayed as a villain.
What a dilemma.
How many times mommy, have you looked at the death as a reason to turn into a victim?
Talking to everyone about how bad this situation is? How the world is crazy?
The perpetrator for sure is the villain and you are the victim.
That was me.
Then I decided I wanted to be a survivor and not the victim.
I wanted to teach my kids how to do the same.
It was a mind shift.
