What Would You Do?

I've seen a number of my fellow bloggers write about this episode last night and Carrie actually posted a link to watch the entire segment. I had taped it but hadn't watched it yet and so I watched it over my lunch break and all I can say is wow! It broke my heart to see how so many people stood by and watched the cruelty occur. I was thrilled to see the few people that did actually stand up, but it really shows how far we have to go. Tears fill my eyes when I think of someone saying that to Sweet Pea! I know it will happen someday because we do live in a society that is far from perfect, but that doesn't make it any easier to swallow. I only hope that it is many years down the line when it does happen because I'm not ready to handle that yet and I'm afraid I won't be proud of my reaction. Daddy might be thrown in jail if he is the one that encounters it first! No one better mess with his little girl!  Here is the clip...

On a happier note, I get to meet Ella and Denise tonight!!!!!  I can't wait!!!!


  1. Im so jealous, give Sweet Ella a big hug for me havea wonderful visit

  2. Yeah for those who stood up! You are right we will always have more work to do. But, isn't it great that we have our sweet girls to show us the way?
    Have fun with Denise & Ella! Give them hugs for us.

  3. This was an excellent program for a variety of groups and organizations. I'm so proud of the people that stood up.

  4. I found your blog from Ella's, and wanted to come say hi! I live close to CHOC and have been visiting her as well, aren't Denise and Ella both just so sweet! :)

    I watched this entire video and ended up sitting here in tears. Oh my gosh, I would have gotten crazy at those people! The ones who stand around and don't say a word are just as bad as the a&&holes spewing hatred! That was horrendous. I understand fear of angering a stranger or whatever but someone has to stand up for those being discrimated against. The teacher was awesome at the end, and I know I would have done the same. Some people are SO ignorant!

  5. so glad you posted this...but i have to say i haven't the guts to watch yet...i'll be a complete wreak!
