The world we live in has changed and not for the better, we live in fear and we have to always question people’s motives now. We hear about the one hit punches, killings,rapes and bombings and it seems like an everyday occurrence and that’s not the life I want for my children and eventually my grandchildren, I wanted them to see the beauty in this world and the love and instead it is over shadowed by hatred and anger.
I tell my children about when I was young my younger brother and I used to go catching yabbies in the dam up the road ( I grew up in a small country town) and we used to go walking in the bush for hours and ride our bikes for miles but now we worry where our children go and what they do as they aren’t safe.
Every night when my daughter and I say goodnight to each other I always say to her I love you and please be safe as I always worry ( my daughter lives away from home she is 22 years old now) but it is the same with two of my boys they live with their dad and I worry everyday and night about them and the fact that they are young men and they are the sort of boys that we have brought up to help anyone in need and now I worry if they do what could happen to them, I don’t like thinking like that. Do any of the mums out there feel the same? Or anyone else dads included feel that way also?
