Between watching the news and reading the paper, it is beyond depressing. What really got to me was the death of this 8 year old boy who had been tortured his whole life and even though authorities were called multiple times, nothing was done. This isn’t just a case of one child falling through the cracks, it is gross negligence by children’s welfare services and the excuse that they were not well trained is laughable. Anyone would be alarmed if school officials called several times and you can see bruises all over. He had even left suicide notes at school but was beaten to death before he could get help. There are too many cases of abuse and neglect and not nearly enough people to handle them. I ran into the same issue when dealing with elder abuse. Every 5 seconds a senior is abused in our country and a fraction of these cases make it to the district attorney. My mother’s was the worst in California which is the number 1 state for abuse with Los Angeles leading the way.
It is unfathomable how parents abuse their own children and everyday, there is another Amber alert or news of someone’s body being found. . It breaks my heart when I read about the countless acts of violence, especially ones against children who haven’t had a chance to live. I will never forget that book “A Child Called It’ about David Pelzer and the unspeakable things his mother did to him. How many David’s are really out there that we never hear about? Thankfully, the parents of this little boy are in prison and will never have another day of freedom. These crimes are horrendous and sadly, they will continue.

It’s bad enough that Robin Williams committed suicide but is it really necessary to have a news report about the position of his body & belt? The sadness that I feel over his death has in part turned to anger at the unrelenting news that thinks there is no line that you can’t cross. Do you really think his children want that to be broadcasted on TV. They will have to spend the rest of their lives dealing with their father taking his own life. It is beyond insensitive and disrespectful but sadly, that is what we have become immune to from the press.
Whenever I hear his name, I automatically smile and remember how he talked about depression and how many comics use humor to deal with unhappiness in their lives.
There was a story on the Today Show about a 23 year old young man, Todd Blake, who has been battling stage 4 cancer since his diagnosis at 18 but still managed to graduate with a 4.0. He said how he needs to live each day to the fullest and still accomplish the goals he has set for himself. He has relapsed 3 times and is on experimental drugs and doesn’t know what the future holds. I wish Robin Williams saw this story and maybe would have had second thoughts after seeing a young man fighting so hard to live another day. It is one end of the spectrum to another, one man wanting life so badly to another man who couldn’t live another day of it. I know there is a star up there with a happy face that is his and will shine forever! But today is a sad day :((
RHONY REUNION PART 2: They have got to get rid of most of the cast. Ramona has alienated everyone except Sonja who lives in Sonja land. Ramona is so mean to her half the time but she doesn’t care, probably because she is now a leading world expert in branding and busy sailing on her yacht with Puffy. Mario has been caught again, clearly he doesn’t care so Ramona has now posted that she is moving on without him. She probably would keep taking him back if she wasn’t in the public eye.
Maybe for Part 3, Aviva will throw her leg at Carol. I guess it takes a village to shut them both up about their great masterpieces.
Watching Ginger play with her toy always puts a smile on my face!
