A quiet life

I just read a post by a fellow blogger who I feel I've got to know quite well over the past year or so. In this post he describes an incident many years ago growing up in a rough part of New York. At the age of twelve, his life was very seriously threatened when he and his brother went to the public pool.

Realising the conditions that many people are compelled to regard as "normal", I am unbelievably thankful that I was able to grow up in a safe environment, and that we have such a safe and welcoming place to bring up our children.
