Yesterday Jason looked outside and noticed that the young men who usually hang out in the park across from our house had suddenly disappeared — leaving two backpacks sitting, abandoned, on the ground.
A few minutes later, it hit me. Backpacks? Abandoned? Bombs? And we looked out and saw that the packs’ owners had returned to pick up their belongings.
That we even thought, for a split second, that those packs could contain bombs, is just more evidence that the world has changed.
