I have always looked forward to the day that I would have kids. Not that I’m in any rush, but kids are definitely in the big picture. There are those moments of self-reflection where I wondered if I would make a good parent, wondered if I could bring a child into a world comprised of violence & hate.
I realized today that it’s not random acts of violence I have to worry about, it’s random acts of stupidity. It’s been over two years now that I’ve been reading about forgetful parents leaving their children in vehicles only to have them die from heat related trauma. My thought was “Stupid stupid parents, well that won’t be me.”
Now I have to worry about daycare workers. These needless deaths are absolutely unforgivable. God help the families that lose their children, but I’m no more informed on this phenomenon then I was back in 2001.
Anybody have a clue on why these things happen? Do you realize the last I heard they were adding alarm devices to vehicles to REMIND PEOPLE ABOUT THESE CHILDREN?
