Can you imagine what it must have been like for a 3 and 4 year old to be surrounded by fire and smoke, without Mommy to save them . . .
What a horrid situation. Have you ever been inside a burning building? The fire gets everywhere, the walls, the ceiling, and even the floor. If the smoke doesn’t render you unconscious before the flames get to you, you burn. And, it is very painful. Think of the fear these children might have faced. What an absolutely horrid thing for a child to endure.
As for the mother, I hope she got an absolutely wonderful hairdo. What a bunch of crap. What kind of parent leaves a 3 and 4 year old alone in the first place? The two most horrible ways to die are
- Trapped in a space filling with water and drowning.
- Trapped in a fire with no way to escape.
In both you are forced to try and breathe something you are not intended to breathe. And, while the water surrounding you may not seem as bad as fire, think of if it is ice cold water that actually makes you body ache from the cold. I just cannot imagine what these children felt and thought being trapped in that house surrounded by smoke and flames. There should be a Law on the books entitled “Felony Stupid” for cases like this. The punishment should range from having to explain to the world why in your mind you found it acceptable to leave your children unattended to simply tying a plastic bag around your head so we do not have to listen to such stupidity as your response.
Okay, maybe I am being a little too harsh. Yeah, right!
