I can't help but fear for my kids' safety these days. I read about another horrific shooting incident in the USA carried out by a depressed teenager. Once again, many innocent lives were lost.
Here in Singapore, I read about a teenage boy who was bashed to death by 4 others, over a wallet he found at the arcade. He was alone when he was attacked. The poor kid died a horrible death.
Now that my kids are older and more independent, they often hang out with their friends at the mall, arcade or at the movies. What if they get into a dispute one day with other rowdy teens or meet some troubled people who're out to seek revenge?
I shudder when I think about such things, yet I can't protect my kids forever. What is this world coming to?
