Then last week I was surprised to learn about another drill. Code Blue. Code blue is for when a "bad guy" enters the school and tries to harm the students or teachers (reminiscent of Columbine). During a code blue, the teachers lock the doors and the students hide.
"Isn't that kind of scary Gabby--were you scared?"
"No mom, it was FUN!"
Now I know a lot of people who say, in response to things like this, that Times are worse now than they've ever been but I disagree. I mean have you read the Old Testament? Now those are some tough times! Scary things and bad people have always existed, but look at what we have now in the information age--we have. . . well, information!
That said, I do think it's sad that schools have to prepare for something like Columbine now but I'm also glad that Gabby goes to school in a prison-like fortress. What bad guy is going to enter that school!
