I know I missed my blogging on the 10th.  As hard as it is to believe, I didn’t know what to blog about. As someone pointed out – they couldn’t believe that I didn’t have something to complain about.  Hmph.  I suppose I have LOTS to complain about now, don’t I?

I can say, however, that after reading the news and seeing what this world is coming to – it’s a scary place to be right now.  We have parents who beat their children, or smoke around them, drink like a fish while taking care of them, and those who dare to do drugs.  Yet there is a mother who left her sleeping toddler within view of her while she and her other child donated money and she is now under arrest for endangerment.  Did I truly read that right?????  I know there are so many of us that have been in her place.  We’ve run into the bank while the car was parked right at the window – in plain sight of you where you can see the child.  I would never go where I can’t see them.  EVER.  When my children were young we didn’t even have the seatbelt laws we have now, but I still never left them alone.

This is just insane.  I’ve seen the abuse some parents put on their kids.  Pushing shopping carts with a cigarette in their hand – right under their child’s nose.  I’m a smoker, but I’m not an idiot.  I know it kills other people.  I have the right to do damage to my own body – but I sure as hell don’t have the right to do it to others.  It’s those idiots (and that’s a nice word) who ruin it for the rest of us.

Who decides what’s right and wrong for our children?  I will have grandchildren (God willing…and yes, I said GOD willing) one day and I pray that they will have more protection than kids do now.  Guns in schools, universities, shopping malls……one may think twice before going outside their door now.  No one is safe.  That’s a scary though.  Truly…..no one.  Think about this and I’d love to hear your comments.
