We Are Deep In the Heart of Texas

Nomadic seasons of farming adventures with nature thrown in to include; a pinch of family, snippets of friends, counting our blessings, paying IT forward, home school, and the spicy things I decide to rant about.

Yesterday's News, which made me feel bad

Headline News (HLN) was reporting on a six year old boy being swept away by flood waters in Arizona.  They went on to say: the parents could be charged by the rescue team for the accident.  WTF these parents had lost their son.

Then the HLN moved onto to a DOG rescue from a helicopter team in LA which they broadcast for over an hour.  It is okay to rescue a dog out of a drainage pit but who will foot that bill.

When did our nation get so freaking callous about children?

I saw this too and was so upset! The parents were trying to take the boy to the hospital. Then the whole dog thing on tv! It was like a whole hour of tv wasted. Now the parents age going to be charged?? What is wrong with people???
