Today, instead of answering a reader question, I want to do something a little different. That horrible explosion at the Ariana Grande concert is really on my mind. And it’s got me thinking about what I would do if I were ever in a situation like that. I talked to my parents, the counselor at school, and my police officer uncle and got some advice. I hope it helps you. It definitely has helped me!
Some of the advice about what to do during the emergency itself has a lot in common with what you’re probably taught at school during active-shooter drills. Even Brianna immediately knew that she should, “Run, Hide, Fight.”
Horrible things happen and there are terrible people in the world. It’s scary.
But there are a LOT more good people than bad. I totally believe that. I hope you do, too!
What are some emergency tips you know? Does your family have a plan for if you’re separated during an emergency?
