"I Stood In LIne And Was Turned Away"

I've seen quite a few posts and stories about Robert Manwill lately. One of them said that they "stood in line for over 45 minutes and I was turned away..."



My cousin's daughter was part of one of these searches 16 years ago. Remember Stephanie Crane from Challis? Do you think I even bothered with a line for that one? I still look for her, but she's never been found, even yet...

I'm not trying to be a downer but the current case seems to be more of a media event. Almost like Jon Benet. I honestly feel for the parents but I think the media is riding this one without a real feel for what is involved. They are building support, but is it effective? Or is it "Well, I stood in line, I TRIED TO HELP!"

Bull Shit! If you are really trying to help, and not just trying to be seen as socially conscious, the lines won't make a difference. You'll find a way to offer true help if it really means something to you.


I could go on and on but I hope the point is made. Don't be a social karma fake. Either believe it and do it or get the fuck out of the way. There are people who do honestly care. If all you want is to be seen doing the right thing, make room for someone who is actually willing to do something about it, besides the minor inconvenience of wasting 45 minutes in line out of the rest of your life.
