Hey readers. I was really hoping to come back here with some fun and possitive to share with you but I just can't do that at this time because I have a very important topic to share with you and it just cannot wait any longer. I tried uploading a video on two different devices and both of those are either low on battery or is low on battery and isn't charging the way it should so I have resorted to coming here instead.
It's not that I don't like blogging anymore, but it's just that it's been pretty tricky finding the time to write a decent post while trying to watch my pups and kiddos but I will do my best to come back to this blog a little more often.
Anyways, the reason why I want to come here to rant a little bit is because I have been reading and hearing A LOT of backlash over an incident that happened this past weekend. And even though I do find a lot of the judgments to be on point there are just some things that are being said that should never leave a person's mouth. Especially when it comes to someone else child, parent, or friend. Point blank period.
Sometime over the weekend a small child was with their family on a family visit to the zoo in Cincinnati Ohio. At some point and time the boy somehow wondered off and found their way in a gorilla exhibit. It's unclear as to how long the boy had been missing and it's also unclear as to how long the boy had been in there, and sadly the gorilla who was in the exhibit was forced to be put down so that the child could be retrieved from the exhibit safely.
There are just so many different thoughts that continue to run through my mind when I think about this incident that occurred. An incident that should have NEVER transpired but at the end of the day, it did. Now there is no doubt in my mind that the mother was negligent in all of this and should somehow be held responsible for the death of the gorilla, BUT it was an ACCIDENT PEOPLE!!!
Seriously as I typed the scenario out on this blog all I wanted to do for a hot second is call this mother all kinds of stupid but what would that prove?? What would that change?? She isn't the world's most perfect mother but what mother is??? And please don't sit up here and say 'Oh I would NEVER let my child do anything like that', because God has a funny way of humbling the folks that just love to say the 'Oh I would NEVER..' quote. Trust me on that one.
My heart goes out to the little boy that had to survive through that whole ordeal and my heart goes out to the gorilla that was put down. My heart also goes out to the mother because I KNOW that the last thing that she would have ever wanted for her son would have to end up in ANY animal exhibit of ANY kind!
NONE of us, whether you're a parent or not, are perfect so stop socially crucifying this woman as if our crap don't stink because it does! And for all that is good and kind in this world, stop wish death and ill will toward this woman because at the end of the day,she's still someone's mother, daughter, wife/partner and friend.
She's imperfect just like the rest of us.
