We just got back from vacation, and the place we stayed at didn't have Internet so I'm just getting to posting this, but it's been on my mind since Monday.

We had went to Wal-Mart for groceries went through and were checking out, when my ankle started hurting so I went and sat at a bench in the customer service area...my friend sat beside me. A lady came up, manager I assume, and pointed at a little girl about 8 or 9 sitting on the other bench....I didn't even notice her there bef

I didn't notice her before the lady pointed her out, but I do remember hearing the announcement for her "party" to meet her at the service desk. They had been trying to find her parents for over 30 minutes. She was sort of lying on the bench, but when she lifted her head up, you could tell she had down syndrome and she was severely sunburned...blistered up, really red. And you could tell she was bad dehydrated. I bought her a bottle of water, but the manager wouldn't let me give it to her.
As we were leaving, the ambulance, fire department, and police showed up :( I tried to find out her condition but no one could tell me.

Poor little girl :(
