As those glass doors opened, I felt myself react involuntary, a slight fear over took me. Hundreds ~ HUNDREDS of kids! I have never felt so short. Here I am, a middle aged woman, dwarfed by the next generation. I can plainly see that black is the color choice of these mini adults.
We made it safely into the sanctuary of the office, as we entered into the more quiet arena, I said to my son 'THAT took courage", apparently stating that with the deafening ear I had obtained in the hall way, I said it rather loud, the staff members all burst out in laughter, as one echoed my declaration with her own "you got THAT right".
The high school I attended was very small, and those joining me in numbers was represented in the door way of my sons school. HOW do they do this, day in and day out. I asked my son, if this was the layout of a normal day, "Yep". Hm... no wonder our youth are timid in some ways, and screaming for attention in others. They can't get past the front doors without being impacted by a crowd.
THAT takes courage. May our youth be 'girded' with God.
