Tell me about it...that breaks my heart.  I really want to foster/adopt kids.  I would adopt a thousand kids if i could.

It gets better....

Every 35 seconds a child is confirmed as abused or neglected.
Every 41 minutes a child or teen dies in an accident.
Every 3 hours a child or teen is killed by a firearm.
Every 5 hours a child or teen commits suicide.
Every 6 hours a child is killed by abuse or neglect.
Every day a mother dies in childbirth.

That is very depressing and I am really sorry I opened this post. I thought it was something to where we could offer prayers or condolences to a family and instead it's statistics. We all know that the world sucks and debating Obama or abortion in no way compares to this post. I know it's reality but honestly  it really, really sucked to open this post and read this.

I would think what "sucks" more is opening and having to see REALITY. You think it sucks..... how about that baby who died or any of the countless others. My point was to make ppl aware that instead of just offering up prayer and condolonces... we need to step in and do something.....

Sorry if you didn't approve of my method of getting others attention

i dont' think it was that she doesn't approve, i think she just meant it's a downer/bummer. because there's nothing she CAN do AT THIS MOMENT. if it was something else she could offer prayers ext , Which still id a bummer to read because you know you couldn't have done anything to prevent it!And yep statistics are horrible!i hate seeing stuff like that and seeing it in the news it's awful! So i do the best i can to make sure that me nor anyone that i know or meet are one of those statistics and unfortunately one of my friends was (was very close to him just knew him) he shot himself in the stomach and died last year feb.7.07. it was horrible! and i wish i could have been there to try to prevent it!he killed him self at the age of 20 over a 30-something or older women who was hoeing around. it's all horrible. the world is very messed up .

My point is we can do something at this moment...... me putting the stats up.. I did something as small as it may be. My thing is this we have over 80,000 members. Instead of fighting about things we really can't change let's brainstorm to get rid of this issue.
