This is definitely becoming our new norm. How do you shield your child from this news when a bomb goes off four miles from your home? Alegra knows all about the bombing last night. Asya was at the Swissotel, 100 yards away, with a friend. This is their world right now. Alara has nothing to say but who knows what is going on inside her head right now. The notion of “emergency money, an emergency flashlight, or a safe space” has become a part of our daily lives.
