Another dreary Friday here in my little area of the world. It is VERY hard to get moving with it being so yucky outside.
I am sure you have viewed the news footage of six year old Falcon's disappearance yesterday and you may even have your own thoughts of the actual reason for this happening. I cannot imagine the sinking feeling the parents had . . . what if that would have been my child? how would I react to the accusations? how would I react to my child once he was found? I watched the interview with Falcon's Father and Meredith Viera on Fox News. The father was angry at the accusations of the entire ordeal being a hoax. Toward the end of the interview, the father was definitely reliving the ordeal and was almost overcome. I must say, I felt bad for him.
Where is our compassion? our empathy? Why is it people are more interested in tragedy and judgement? What would you have done differently?
As many of you know from reading my blogs, I have four little boys . . . four very active, imaginative and inventive little boys. No matter how many times my boys are told to be careful, don't to this or that, etc. they always seem to do the opposite ~~~ I believe little boys are wired to be challenging, inventive and high strung. Little Falcon had probably been told hundreds of times to stay away from the weather balloon. He had probably been told hundreds of times not to get into the basket of the balloon. The balloon somehow got loose and it probably freaked out Falcon . . . it would have my boys.
Praise God Falcon was safe . . .
