Today I was giving a class when another teacher informed us about Boston. Obviously everyone immediately thought it was terrorism, but those of us who are older couldn’t bring ourselves to say it. The kids, of course, asked. And even if my brain was saying “finish line, two explosions, it’s too much of a coincidence”, I could only bring my self to say “we don’t want it to be terrorism, because if it is, things are going to get worse for all of us”. At that moment everyone fell silent, I continued my class, and sent a text to my cousin in Boston.
