Who Cares?

The title caught my attention first, "Mummified body found in front of blaring TV." My first thought was humorous, like yeah, that would be so my husband. So I read the article, and I was horrified. I watched the news footage, and I felt sick. How horrible to die in your own home and have no one even bother to check on you for over a year.

I'm trying not to be critical or judgemental. But, I feel angry and so saddened.

I can only hope his story forces readers to take a look inward and ask what are they doing to contribute to this social apathy. And how can we change?

That is so sad. I guess he didn't have a dish or cable...they would have totally shut that down! (I'm sensitive...I swear! I'm just saying!)
