How many of us came upon the article in the paper about the starved (now dead) Vancouver teenager and, probably having just read about the 45th mass shooting in a month, experienced that familiar “this-really-is-the-last-straw” kind of feeling? I mean, honestly, how many more eyes had to be on this boy to save him? Did no one intervene until it was too late? CPS? Has the article left something out?
I have heard there are some people (nincompoops, IMHO) who believe unborn children choose their parents, that they implant their souls into specific embryos, or some such baloney. Right. (Though, if true, looks like a lot of kids are lousy parent-picker-outers.)
One bit of good news: Off-the-grid dad from Snohomish County has been found in New Mexico and the kids are OK. Well, that’s just super. However, it will also be good news if one day — soon — we read about a bunch of folks in Vancouver experiencing some unpleasant consequences for their anything-but-benign neglect of young Karreon.
