Was out exploring this past weekend and came across the sweetest little apple orchard here in Kent. I didn't have time to really explore it that day, but my eyes spotted the most beautiful patch of Dahlias and I knew I'd have to return to take some photos by them. I came back the next day and shot these photos, and I was so lucky to capture them when I did. The owner of the farm said they would be gone the next day because of the impending frost coming. How delicate life is! The stunning beauty of nature's delicacies here one day abd gone the next...just goes to show you to take advantage of every little thing, every little day.
I've been quite frustrated this past week with some going ons back in my hometown. There has been a slew of bomb threats at different school districts in my county (and when I say slew, I'm talking around 5-6 just in the last week). Many of the schools are elementary schools, and I'm sure most of you know that I have a little sister who is just 12 years old. It's incredibly frustrating and painful. Growing up, I NEVER ONCE in the 12 years I attended school in my district feel afraid to go to school or had the threat of a bomb or shooter impressed on me. I don't understand why people do this stuff and what's happened in the last decade. It seems like all I see anyone is about innocent lives being taken away in schools across the country and fear being place in the hearts of little ones where inspiration and education should be instead. My sister's school has not been threatened yet, but every day I dread going on my facebook for fear of seeing that her school has been evacuated.
I don't want this to turn into a big hot debate in the comments on US gun laws and school safety. I just wish that what's right for schools and children here in America could be put into pratice instead of this mad chaos that seems to be taking over the educational system. Please, if you could, say a prayer for my county here in Ohio that the bomb threats on schools will cease and hopefully steps will be taken by our government to further protect children and prevent this from continually happening. x
With much love, Lauren.
