One thought on “What are your Kids Doing this Summer?

  1. I love this story, as a retired teeachr my path has crossed the path of many children who have these same fears. I can still see their little faces and feel their fears and wish that they had a Strong Man to comfort and protect them. I love to tell stories and since I’ve retired I have become the resident story teller for the kindergarten children in my school. I would love to tell this story to them. Maybe through this story I can touch the soul of a child who is enduring these fears and reassure them that they are special and that there are people out there that do love and care for them.
