Hateful violence and calamitous natural disasters touch all of us. Hearing about about scary events can leave children feeling unnerved, angry, or shaken. One need not have directly suffered from a natural disaster to be frightened, angered, or upset by nature’s power to cause harm.
Parents want to help our children emotionally and spiritually process what is happening in and outside our communities. For Unitarian Universalists, action is a valid response; it is important to ground that action in compassion and make it part of our own healing.
