So I was scrolling through FB while watching Castle (great show by the way) and I saw this amazing story. After having a hard couple weeks as a teacher, this story made me remember how truly good a person can be. All this sweet boy wants is to protect his sister.
And then I saw this…
I don’t even know what to say, except…really?

It would take an awful lot to restore my faith in humanity. But animal rescue tends to do that to a person.

The title is probably a bit more dramatic than what I intended. It just blows my mind how our society can be sometimes.

@KatiePi: I never understand why Twitter comments make the news. Twitter (and lots of the rest of the internet) gives a platform to the vile 1%. They should be ignored. (And I wish beauty pageants would just die out but that’s another issue).
But that little boy brought years to my eyes.

I was wondering that too. A lof of those photos made it look like the comments were made by teenagers. That little boy seems pretty cool to me.

That was so sweet! For every good thing, there is an equally bad thing.
I feel for Miss USA. She must be feeling crappy right now knowing there are so many idiots out there who don’t realize that she was born in New York. Sigh. But as @paula1248:
said, Twitter is not the news.
ETA: I just read some of the tweets….Arab?????? I fear for the future of this country.
This is even worse then the idiots who tweeted that Mark Anthony shouldn’t be singing the national anthem because he’s Mexican. Again, born in New York.
I give up.

Twitter is the official soap box of tweens, teens and early 20-somethings… A lot of people with still-forming brains!

I did not hear about the Mark Anthony thing…wow.

Yeah, the Twitterverse is sadly undereducated and ill-informed. Ms America is Indian, which is a entirely different subcontinent than “Arab”. And even in India there are a huge number of diverse people groups. And she was born IN New York, that makes her 100% American. I feel really bad for Ms Kansas who seems to have gotten dragged into a mess on the internet by a bunch of idiots.
