As of February 14, 2018, there had already been eight school shootings in the United States for the year. I was shocked when I heard that. Why hadn’t I heard about the others? The only reason I was hearing about them now was because 17 people were heartlessly killed in Parkland, Florida. The wall-to-wall TV coverage scared us all, but especially a lot of our kids. Fear is debilitating. There are a number of verses in the Bible about fear and anxiety—and that God is in control. Keys for Kids Ministries provides tools to help kids deal with their fear. We have a great seven-day devotional free on YouVersion about that. Just search for “Keys for Kids” on YouVersion to find it.
