In tragedy's wake II

OK, I have heard enough from the negative side of the public concerning Maddox Derkosh, the 2-year-old fatally mauled by African painted dogs at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium. Think back, all of you who have children, and tell me you have never lifted your child up on that railing to get a better view. I know I (when my kids were younger) had done it numerous times. So stop, stop, stop blaming Maddox's mom.

This was a tragic accident and there is no blame to be placed anywhere. I love the fact that the public (the majority) has come forward with the Trucks for Maddox campaign and I hold the Derkosh family in my prayers for peace. Now, negative people, stop with your comments and let them heal!
