During the past several days I have felt so much stress, anger and frustration because my 25 year old son is a bank teller who had a gun pointed inches from his face during a local bank robbery.
Needless to say, my son has been going through a lot of uncomfortable feelings…..one of which is anger. I believe it is victim’s anger. I think he is starting to feel a little better and will heal in time. Everyone in town has been asking him questions. Hopefully that will die down soon. Small towns quickly find something new to buzz about.
During the robbery my son was told not to touch the alarm button or he would get his head blown off! He followed directions and kept everyone safe by doing so. I’m very thankful for that. I would have been shaking in fear but he was calm on the outside.
My son and another teller were able to give a perfect description of the robber (who was so dumb that he didn’t cover his face or bring anything to put the money in. ) The robber was caught on Friday and is now behind bars….thank God!
I had a nightmare the night before the robber was apprehended. In it the robber came to our home...
