special news, emotional upset, kids
Ok . . . you are finally finished with your chores and you are ready to watch television. You’re thinking maybe a little action-adven¬ture or comedy might be nice. But no. Instead, there is a special news report interrupting your show. You get a sinking feel¬ing in your stomach. Some-thing is wrong. The news can upset all of us, young and old. It can scare us, make us mad, and even make us worry about our homes, families, and lives.
