I remember when I hated history. There was nothing more boring to me than memorizing dates, names, places, and events that seemed to have no significance in my life other than making me really good at trivia games. Simply put, I just didn’t want to be bothered with it.
Fast forward 20 years… history has become my passion. It has helped me to define who I am, where I’m going, and who I want to be.
Is it really August already? In just a few weeks time, children and parents all over the country will be gearing up for back-to-school time.
Unfortunately, the new school year will be starting on the heels of some very troubling events – two mass shootings, to be precise. Considering that schools have been targets of these heinous crimes in the past, it’s only natural that parents are concerned with how to protect their children, hence the topic of this post.
