And where was GOD? All the A_____s

Do you really think God is still
with us. STOP AND THINK I believe we have been lied to far too long.
Just my thought at this time !

It didn't take long for the first idiot to show up, did it? Hey, Welcome, do you know how many kids die every day in truck and car accidents.

You said, "Welcome to the 21st century." Is this what you had in mind?

Before you post some stupid comment trying to be funny, remember this is about a 12 year old DYING in an unfortunate accident leaving behind a grieving family.

So think your smart aleck comment but do society a favor and just keep it to yourself.

Are you suggesting they spend 40K on some ridiculous 12mpg pickup that would destroy the environment they have worked so hard to maintain? Let them be. This could have happened on any modern day farm or even on the streets of Indianapolis on a carriage ride.

May God rest his soul. That being said the Amish do travel at their own peril just as cell phone users, makeup drivers, etc. do.

God is here and he does help us, just not in the way we always want. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and the boy is walking hand in hand with Christ now.

I assume the boy was Amish.
My thoughts and prayers go with his family+friends.
So young of a boy makes this even more tragic.

Too bad, but stuff happens.
sounds like you should be institutionalized. we should thank god every day for our blessings. i am not passing judgement on you...just observing your ignorance.
