Appalled by editorial

I was appalled by the insensitivity of the opening statement in the editorial “Tragedy at the zoo: Time for barriers” (Nov. 6 and TribLIVE.com).

To start by questioning the mother's actions shows no compassion for the family that is in the midst of intense grief.

By now, everyone knows what happened, so could we please stop the blame game and pray for a family that needs our prayers, not our criticism?
