I experienced the saddest thing that I have ever seen in my entire life today. Im in a 3rd grade class today and there is girl that is new, it was her first day. Apparently she felt that some of the kids were being mean to her, so I had a talk with her during recess. She proceeds to tell me ?im a foster kid, you don?t know what its like to live my life!? ?you don?t know what its like for your dad to be dead, and half of your family to be dead.? ?my foster parents wont let me go to the park or play in the back yard like normal kids do, all they do is yell at me!? etc etc etc. She brought me to tears.
Obviously I did my best to listen to her and give her the best advice that I could think of. The thing that kills me is that these foster parents go and take in way more kids than they can handle just for the money. The kids come to school in rags, are malnourished, never get any help at home with their homework, yet the parents drive Cadillac escalades.
You can almost bet that this girl has no chance to ever succeed in life. She already has the ?don?t give a fuck? attitude, and I?m sure it wont improve anytime soon.
When the fuck are the people that are in charge of this country going to quit worrying about everyone else and start to take care of business right here at home?
That is all, I just had to vent!
