How do we handle it ? We don't know. We talk. We try to read about simple stories about simple and safe life. Just to remind the kids that a different life is possible, somewhere else.
I'm active, being a nurse, and that helps me. I could not stay anymore at home, worrying about a possible attack at the school, reading the newspapers... At home, when my husband is in Afghanistan, I write a lot to my friends. I tell them what we live. I don't ask for any special help, I 'm just happy that there are people listening to me.
But I miss "joy". Sometimes I feel that I should laugh more with my children. I should play more with them, I mean in a funny way, not always following the normal rules. But I can't !!!!!!!!
We are a small community (70 kids at the school), all very shocked by the last terrorist attack in Karachi, where 12 French compatriotes died. And we can't help each other a lot...
But, let's keep a positive attitude ! Our children sleep, dream, study at school, they express some anger, and fierces through their games (my son and his guns obsession !) but it seems that they are OK...
Yes, be prepared to answer to his questions in the future, i.e : what did you do to stop this horror? May be a simple answer could be " I tried to raise you in a quiet and peacefull familly environment..."
We are raising the Men of tomorrow !
(still OK with my english ? If it's too bad, just tell me... It's a shame I can't find such interresting websites in french)
