Nice Day for a Crisis

We ran one of our mandatory crisis drills today and even though the teachers all cracked jokes about taking bullets for each other and gunmen hiding in the library stacks (thanks, guys, for the mental image), when I actually stopped to think about it it was quite scary. Both the lockdown procedure and the evacuation made me nervous- standing outside with 500 kids to be responsible for gave me a shivery feeling. The nurse had her emergency kits, the teachers had their crisis binders, everything was very "Code Red".

Plus, it was in the middle of my lunch. I'd think if some crazy dude had a thing for rich suburban kids they'd at least have the decency to take the school early in the morning or late in the afternoon, not during my lasagna time. Seriously.
