In the article found in Rocky Mountain News, Kids played while mom slept by Tillie Fong relates to both the world and myself.
The article was about a mom, Stacey Mendieta that fell asleep while her kids were playing. They went outside and started playing in the car that she didn’t lock when she got home. Eventually she woke up at 3:00 pm and couldn’t find her kids. Stacey looked all over the house and 10 minutes later called the police. When they got to her house they looked through it and couldn’t find anything. Then when one policeman came outside to give her a report he saw a knee or leg through the car window. Both kids Jasmine (5) and Nathan (2) were found dead of Hypothermia. Jasmine was found with her teddy bear in her arms when the car door was opened. When the man opened the door a blast of hot air came out. The temperature of the car was 108 degrees. A witness, John Ferguson, said he saw the kids playing in the car when he was working on a house across the street while taking a cigarette break. He also saw them when he was leaving. This Friday, October 24th, Stacey is being tried with two counts of child abuse resulting in death.
This article connects to me in the way that if you see something that is weird or out of place, like 2 little kids playing in the car with no parent in sight… you should probably do something. John could have saved both kids’ lives if he reported it, went to check on the kids, or rang the house door bell to make sure a parent is aware of the situation. It’s called using your head.
The article relates to the world in the same sense, if you don’t see something that’s right look into it. If everyone did that the world would be so much better off. Take America’s gas prices for example. Our government is stupid enough to not let America use our own recourses, and is buying our gas from Iraq! Which that money most likely goes to their military, used to fight us in the war. Seriously, they need to start using their heads.That is how the article Kids played while mom slept relates to both the world and myself.
