If you've been in the internet at all since Saturday, then you've probably seen a story or two (or hundred) about how Harambe the gorilla had to be put down by the Cincinnati Zoo so they could rescue a 4 year old boy who had fallen into the gorilla's enclosure.
You've probably also seen how the parents of the little boy are being violently ripped apart on the internet. I was going to share some of the comments being made about the family, but I can't. They're just too awful. Phrases like stupid kid, worst parents ever, neglectful, and things too harsh to be printed here are being thrown at the family. People are calling for prosecution of the parents and for CPS to get involved.
Before we go any further, I want to tell you a few experiences my sister and I have had as parents.
