I was going to write a witty little piece on bunny rabbits, but realized that it wasn't going the direction I planned. Rather than the fuzzy little Easter Bunny angle, it was quickly swerving into boiled rabbit territory. So I scrapped it. Maybe tomorrow.
A local girl went missing Sunday, and apparently the police didn't even start their search until about Tuesday. Despite how strange I think that it, the thing that really bothers me are the people who comment on the related articles published on the news web page. Sometimes, I wonder if allowing people to comment on articles is really a good thing. Hiding behind an anonymous icon seems to give people all kinds of freedom to be cruel and say the most incredibly hurtful things. This is a 12 year old girl, for godsake, missing for almost a week and "adults" reading these articles find it completely appropriate to make comments about how easy it should be to find her because of her weight, and how they should follow the grease trail. They find it appropriate to criticize the mother and judge her parenting skills, to call her a "loser" because she doesn't have transportation for her children. I hate to break it to them, but even us poor folk love our children. Then they pat themselves on the back and applaud their good parenting because they're "not out looking" for their children. It makes me physically ill. I had to stop reading them because I was seriously getting sick. There is a desperate family out there, searching for their missing child and instead of offering their assistance to the search, these self-described excellent parents are sitting at their computers, insulting a little girl and her family.
I hope they never know the pain that the Wilson family is facing. And I hope she comes home safe. I can't imagine the horror.
