Sad to play a bell and no baby is here. We do not yet know exactly what has happened. An explosive device exploded, the second did not. The kids could come here this morning and have other issues. We do not know the reasons. We have not had any issues in the last few days. The climate has been calm for the last few days. The police will tell us if it has anything to do with the reactions to the measures and the protests. We had some discussions, but not intense ones. “I’m sure it’s not from our parent.”
