There are not many things I choose to bring to the table in a public fashion. I will rant about it at home and bend the husband's ear endlessly, but this site is not a forum for that sort of thing. Until today. I needed to get it off my chest. 
     By now, if you have read any of my posts, you know I have three children. They are my world, along with my husband. I would do anything for them. I cannot imagine hurting them in any way, shape or form. So, when I read on CNN about a father who locks his child in a car and lets him die, it is beyond anything I can understand. This little boy was two months older than my youngest child. He had the same name as my little boy. It devastates me, yet the boy's mom is not blaming the father. I can't even imagine this. How can she still stand by her husband when he took her child away?
     How this man took his baby to breakfast and then strapped him into his car seat to die is beyond comprehension. He researched killing his little boy. How is it monsters like this have children? They do not deserve these wonderful little beings who put all of their love and trust into us. How can anyone take that for granted? Every day, I look at my children with such wonder and love. I cannot believe that I made these amazing little people, no matter how much they frustrate me. Each child is a blessing. This monster took one away in a horrible, evil way. It breaks my heart to think of that little boy crying for his dad in those final minutes, hoping to be saved. 
     I don't believe there is a lesson to be learned from this. I don't think anything will change. I just know that tomorrow I will hug my children and tell them how amazing they really are, just like I always do. Every child should feel that way each and every day and if you don't make them feel that way you aren't doing your job.
