Remember that little girl in Texas who fell down the well? She probably has kids of her own now, playing out back where no one’s watching them.
Remember that little Colorado beauty queen? Anyone go to jail for that? Tragedy. Do you find it odd that a 6 year old girl is made-up to look like a grown woman (by the same people who probably can’t stand Marilyn Manson)? I’m trying to find a message here but it’s hard to choose just one.
Remember where you were when the first Kenndedy was shot? If you don’t then you probably remember where you were when the first space shuttle exploded.
I’ve heard of these anorexic support forums and I’m trying to decide whether to be for or against them (I then ask myself why I need to take a side). They are places where people with eating disorders can go to share comments, stories, motivation and tips on how to survive with their illnesses. Ok, I just decided I am for it. They should have the same thing for junkies and child pageant queens because god knows we could use all the friends we can get.
Sometimes terrible things bring people together as if it were something wonderful. Sometimes bad things just happen with no reasonable explanation and we go through life trying to bury it and not giving it another thought. Some say these things happen for a reason, often applying god to the equation. I just wonder why sometimes it takes so long to realize what those reasons are, if we find out at all. Or maybe we already know these things and just don’t see it.
I wonder if Jessica McClure ever thinks about these things?
