In the article I read in the Glenwood Post Independent
, Glenwood youth feared drowned in Colorado River | PostIndependent.com
mother said he DID
know how to swim. Certainly, I think everyone agrees that they should not be tubing & obviously should have been wearing a PFD. I believe most humans intend to be good and wouldn't harm loved ones.
You'd don't have to believe in God...that's the beauty of living in this country. Sad that you feel necessary to mock those who do.
I believe each person is entitled to their beliefs. Deriding another's faith or lack of faith is disrespectful. It's presumptuous to think that everyone has the same background knowledge that you do about river safety. I live by the motto that unless I've walked a mile in their shoes, I don't understand what they have lived through & try not to presume or judge anyone. I also work with good decent families in poverty & they have not had the luxuries of a k-12 education plus college that I & my friends have so I know they don't know some basic things a more educated, well-read person might know simply because they were born into the wrong situation. They all want the best for their children but sometimes make poor choices.
I try to extend compassion whenever possible.
You seem awfully angry that someone is thinking of and praying for people who have lost a child in their family or as their friend.
Unfortunately, living in America, we pay taxes for a lot of people's mistakes. That's the consequence of living in a democracy. There's a lot I could complain about paying for but I choose to stay positive.
