And then we wonder what went wrong with kids today......

Here's the current headlines on my local news site:

* 10 Year Old Fondled Waiting In Line For Boardwalk Ride

* Investigators Learn More About Abandoned Baby's Father

* Officials Say Funeral Director Stored Babies' Bodies

* Former Guard Kept Runaway Student in Basement for 10 years

* 12 Children Injured In School Bus Crash

* Kids Discover Decomposed Body

* Girl Dies On Ride at Disneyland Paris Ride

* Wrestler Strangles Wife, Smothers Son

What is happening to our world??? ALL of the top news stories involve children being hurt, killed, traumatized, victimized and wronged!!!! I'm going to hug my kids even more tightly than usual when I see them. What a depressing news cycle!

All I can say is *sigh*

I try not to watch the news anymore for that very reason. I read it online now, mostly because I can be selective about what I chose to 3expose myself to and also because then the kids don't hear/see it.

yes, there are some really sick people out there. I was really saddened by the wrestler story this last week. Their son was developmentally delayed, and he and his wife had kept that a secret from their friends. How horrible to be living in secret? The kid was seven!
The whole thing is a travesty...
