What is wrong with people?

I am going to bed on an angry note because of the news.

Two different segments on cruelty to an animal.

The first involved a 14 year old boy abusing a kitten at the park and cutting it. An 8 year old boy grabbed the knife away from the older boy before more damage was done. He had already dropped the kitten on the ground from a high slide. The little boy kept pleading for him to leave it alone. The kitten lived but has a broken leg, fractured rib and bruised lung. How horrible but kudos to the 8 year old for standing up to a bully on behalf of that kitten. The kitten goes up for adoption Friday.

The next one was a dog that was adopted and has a great life now. He was found weeks ago burned with acid and stabbed.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE? Are people so warped that they have to pick on something that can not defend it self.

As I finished this post a thought went through my head.... What should I expect when I live in the area that thinks that famous football player from around here was innocent when he was found to be involved in dog fighting?

it is sad when people are abusive to animals and to little children (and anyone in general). I can only hope that 14 y/o boy gets help (and is punished for his actions). I'm not an expert but I remember it is like a "red flag" when people act out like this against animals. Good for that 8 y/o stepping in and trying to help!

unfortunately we live in such a sad evil world we will have events like this; our only hope is prayer and asking God to change people's hearts and lead people to the saving grace of Jesus
