That is what the sign hanging over our heads said as we walked into Walmart. My kids then had to find a calendar, and double check to see the number of days, debate on who would care and why, then ask the poor customer service lady about Walmart's customer comment policy because they were planning on writing a letter about the lack of school supply in the summer. (Ds #3 had wanted some color pencils they were out of.) As we left, the kids were making up a song about 51 days of personal freedom left for young americans. All this for a pack of Crayolas.

That is just too funny.

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
