How horribly sad! My thoughts and prayers are with Austin and his family!

Maybe 12 is a little young to be able to say, with knowledge and afore sight "Yes I want to do this". Kids certainly would say that they want to, but I question that they really understand that being dead is a full time commitment--just as being a cripple is. I mean, the kid is not considered adult enough to go to jail--nor to vote--and riding a bull is something that is certain to have (if you keep doing it) a bad outcome. So maybe, just as he couldn't race a Ferrari, he should wait a bit on the bull riding--say until he is old enough to race a Ferrari. He certainly should be required to show total and complete medical insurance, as I don't want to pay to have him fixed.

so I guess kids shouldn't be able to play any other kind of sports either??? There have been paralyzing injures in football, basketball, etc....

Our thoughts and prayers go out to this boy. The Austins are a great family!!

Children should be allowed to pursue their dreams and I am sure that every precaution was taken to keep him safe! Accidents can happen to ANYONE, even you Stan. God bless him and his family and I hope he pulls through with flying colors and gets back on someday.
