My family has not been the same since. I am angry that this has happened to the United States-to us all. My son will be 5 next month. He will not sleep by himself now and has started having "accidents"-I thought we were through with that. We try to keep him from seeing the news but I fear the damage has been done. Then, on Thursday, they went on a field trip to the AIRPORT-of all places. Granted this was planned before the attacks,but I felt like it should have been canceled. I refused to take him to school that day-plus he didn't want to go since he is now scared of planes.
I'm supposed to protect him and I didn't. I feel so guilty. I'm hurt,angry,confused. What do I do? Where do I go from here? I can handle all the stuff dished out at work in the ER but I don't know how to make this right with my child. Any suggestions will be welcome.
Love you guys,
