I’m The October Scrooge since I don’t believe
And ghosts and goblins I’ll not receive.
Some think it’s fun
To make kids run
But Halloween horrors make me grieve.
Okay, my blogging friends, don’t call the curses down on me! I’m only partly serious. I can’t get past a Halloween years ago when I stood with my hand on the shoulder of a little first grader when a teacher’s aide from another classroom, dressed as a witch came shrieking, breaking into my classroom and I felt the terrified heart beat of that child. I would like to have stooped down, hugged her tight, and told her she was safe and Jesus loved her. But I would be in trouble for that! That was not allowed in the classroom. I confess to being mad that the “witch” was allowed!
