What do you do when you learn that both of your children's schools have received bomb threats, and the school administration has decided to hold classes anyway?

In these three pieces, each of them—the mother and her two daughters—tells what was most meaningful to her that day.

It was clear to me that prayer was needed to counteract a frightening and potentially dangerous situation.
