Hi all. Most of you probably know, I try to keep out of politics or really anything inflammatory because I really don't see a point in fighting (which invariably happens), plus I HATE conflict unless it's in my books. However, my husband showed me this video last night and I HAD to share it.
What happened to these poor people is DISGUSTING. Completely disgusting. And it's not just the fact of what happened, which is horrible on it's own. It's the fact that the media doesn't care AT ALL. I NEVER heard a word of this before now. And I don't even have words for it now except to say that they deserved better. Much better.
I can't do much to help, but I can share the video. And hope that I can spread the word. So, please, if you could just take a few minutes of your time to watch the video and share it as well, I would appreciate it.
And to Mr. Strait and his family: You and your wife deserved better. I'm very sorry for what happened and how it was basically ignored by every media outlet. My thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family.
To all my blog readers. We're all adults (or young adults) here and we're smart, beautiful people. I know that not everyone will agree with me or the video and will want to voice that opinion. As I have voiced mine. Of course, that's fine. In fact, I will encourage smart discussion of this topic. Therefore, I will leave comments available for this post, but PLEASE, please keep in mind what this family has already gone through and keep your comments respectful and tasteful. Anything I determine to be disrespectful, inflammatory, or racist/sexist, etc, will be deleted.
