Welcome my Angry Angels to Group Session #2.
In our groups sessions we address a reader comments and more frequently reader emails. As usual I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
Before I address the week's feedback I want to send out a very warm regards to Jennifer Petkov and her husband Scott. For those of you who don't remember the Petkov's, they were the ones from Trenton, Mich who took to cyber-bullying Kathleen Edward and making her life a living hell. Kathleen, of course was completely asking for it since at the time she was all of seven years old and suffering from Huntington's Disease. I'm sure that having her as a neighbor really fucked up the Petkov's eugenics fantasies of a perfect Michigan. Especially since Kathleen's mother Laura had already died of the same disease.
Aside from posting pictures on Facebook of the little girls face with crossbones underneath, I thought it was a stroke of genius to build a coffin and drive it in front of the Edward's house while honking your horn.
Is this what passes for fun when you are 33 in Michigan?
On the positive side young Kathleen passed today at the age of 9. I hope every one of my readers, and everyone in America will take a moment and say a silent prayer for her soul which is now reunited with her mothers. And remember how a young girl showed us all a beauty and strength that most of us can only hope to have briefly in our own lives.
Once you are done with those silent prayers, I want you to remember the Petkov's faces. Anytime you think that there isn't pure, sick, disgustingly evil sacks of shit out there to prey on you and your children, you remember these two. You remember that all the suffering that Kathleen and her family went through, these people were there to make it worse.
Maybe we can redirect some of that anger and do something with Kathleen's name on our hearts. Volunteer a few hours at a children's hospital or a after school center. Just do something to wipe a little bit of the darkness off our hearts that the Petkov's have soiled us all with. Be just a little better to someone tomorrow than you were today.
Actually, I've got an even better idea. I want every single one of my Angry Angels, every damn one of you to send a two word email to David Fowler of the Family Action Council of Tennessee. In the subject line put Bullying Legislation and in the body, just two words. Kathleen Edwards. And while you are at it send it to every legislator you can. Hell you can even make up your own email addresses and sign it "AN ANGRY ANGEL" if you are afraid of reprisals from these uber-bullys.
Bullying is a crime, no matter the perpetrator, no matter the victim.
On a side note, I have seem to have really struck a nerve with the HSUS/PETA and animal postings last week! I think I am going to do a weekly post on this issue as I have received a TON of information on these scams from people around the nation! Very excited to get so much feedback from you, and of course it does nothing to assuage my anger!! You my Angels are making this more fun by the day and of course it wouldn't be effective Anger Management if we weren't YELLING about it!
So what would you think about doing specific topics per day? I'll think about it this weekend while I'm watching the Giants pull off the biggest upset of the season by knocking the Packers out of the playoffs! Go Blue!!
And a shout out to Angry Angel Matt celebrating birthday 37! Good luck making it to 38 and thanks for the emails!
So my Angry Angels, have a great weekend relax a bit and remember little Kathleen Edwards.
