Sometimes…when I watch the news,  I wonder if the whole world has gone slap stone cold crazy.

In the last three days…..

On Friday, March 27  in Dallas, Texas, a mother got high on painkillers and wine, then left her 7-month-old son  in his car seat overnight. When she remembered him, the next morning, he is found dead. (She also had two toddlers in the car…but she had remembered to take them in the house with her. ) This mother had already previously been charged with  DUI, hit and run, and multiple public intoxications. 

Saturday, March 28, a man in Mass. stabbed his 17-year-old sister to death, decapitated his 5-year-old sister and then headed toward his 9-year-old sister before officers shot and killed him. It happened at the 5 year olds birthday party.

Now today, Sunday March 29, some man goes to a nursing home in North Carolina and opens fire… going room to room, randomly picking out, shooting and killing seven elderly residents and also the nurse who cared for them.

Most of the ones he killed were in their 80’s…and I believe one was in their 90’s. Those poor elderly residents and the health care folks who worked there (that survived) will probably never be the same.

He was stopped when he was shot and wounded…. by the same 25 year old police officer that he had just shot and wounded.

As it stands now, if the one who shot and killed 8 defenseless people lives,

We the tax payers will have to supply him with:

 free food,

free health care,

free room and board.


a free lawyer.

This makes my blood boil….how about you?

Lord, I hope the news is better tomorrow.

There sure have been a lot of that lately. I wonder why they just don't shoot themselves and leave other people along. Hugs, Helen

I do try not to watch the news. It is much too depressing. Wish sometimes that the news could bring a little more good stuff our way.

awful isn't it?? I don't know what the world is coming to...

Pamela said...

I don't think it's going to be getting better with all the pressure people are under at the moment. I just don't get can they do things like this?

Lynne said...

I think Pamela got it right. So much stress and those gestures reek of individuals that have lost their minds. Totally sick!

I was boiling over the SC nursing home shooting too. Absolutely a waste of life and demonic on so many levels.
I live in Las Vegas, where during the hot summer months we have children die because parents (or a parent) forgets their child. It just breaks my heart. I'm praying that this year will be the years that we have no deaths because of this. One can always hope right?
Take good care :)
Huggers, Gayla

Oh Carlene, These stories are heartbreaking. How can anyone do those things? Sometimes I despair of the world in general...sigh

Love and Hugs

Yep, the world is going crazy. The return of the Lord won't come fast enough for me. I wish just ONE news outlet would share good things instead of all this horror. Wouldn't that be nice? "Man, overcome with love, treats his family to a day at the park. Film at 11" Blessings, Penny
