      We have to be responsible for our little ones. The Internet, video games, phone, nothing is more important than caring for our children. We have many differences HL but on this we have the same thoughts.
      Please do not leave your children unattended whether in the back yard, to run into the quick stop, or in the bathtub or pool. Let’s start right now to have a safer summer than last year.

    I agree with. HL and SARAH 1. This is way beyond tragic. We do have to be responsible for our children and grandchildren. They depend on us.

    So, so very sad. This will require nothing short of God’s intervention to help the family member who was driving. Some people have an immature concept of God when they ask “why would he allow something like this to occur?”. There actually is a God given Peace that more than makes up for the pain involved – IF one is willing to be open too it and spend the time grieving. The later is going to happen anyway.
