Day 06 — Something you hope you never have to do

I guess I would have to go with my biggest fear here. 

I do have three daughters. 
While I know this happens to boys too ...
I fear for my girls.

They are beautiful.
But they are innocent children.
And as adults I still want them safe.

I pray I never have to hold them while they cry.
I will if I need to.
I will also go to the ends of the earth to make sure the crime is punished.
I believe in an eye for an eye.

This fear at times can overwhelm me.
I have felt almost crippled by it before. 
I have tried to raise my kids to be smart though.
Almost to the point of fear.
Sometimes a little fear is necessary.

But I think mine goes deeper.
It comes from experience.
It comes from not being protected.

So I protect.

But I don't actually say it outloud.

Because I fear it still.
