Welcome to Wade's World where Jeremy and Amy are just the parents, Macy is the B-A-D dog, and our two boys, Jackson and Anderson are the real stars of the show!
We are Christian conservatives who love Jesus, our families, and each other. We live somewhere in the South where we love grits, say "y'all," and know that you never, ever wear white shoes before Easter or after Labor Day no matter what Stacy London and Clinton Kelly say.
Stay tuned for what inevitably lies ahead as Amy blogs about life in Wade's World.
On Tuesday of this week a gunman boarded a school bus in Midland City, AL and demanded that the school bus driver give him to children. The driver, Charles Poland, was shot and killed. One of the little boys in the bus, a five year old named Ethan, fainted and was carried away to an underground bunker by the gunman. Ethan suffers from autism, and will have his 6th birthday very soon. He has been with his captor for more than 60 hours now. Dale county is in my marketing territory, and I travel through this sleepy little town once a month. In fact, just yesterday I was 20 minutes from Midland City. This is not the kind of thing you would ever expect would happen in such a small community.
I can't imagine what the family of the heroic bus driver is going through, and my heart is broken for thinking about the terror those kids must have felt witnessing such an awful act. Please pray that Ethan is returned safe and sound to his Mom and Dad very soon, that this situation will resolve without further violence, and that he will be able to cope with the horror of this situation.
