    Stupid, Stupid parents!!!
    We've had it happen up here where a little boy fell backwards off of his father's shoulders off an upper level balcony of a building while they were taking pictures as well. That little boy died too!!!
    Maybe if they had payed attention to the height and the fact that they had a 2-year-old, he might still be alive!
    This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.
