I grew up in a different era.
When I was a kid, dogs walked around freely in the neighborhood and nobody ever picked up after their dog, yet somehow we survived and everyone seemed to be a little happier and less stressed than we all are today.
Now there are strict leash laws and the neighborhood Poop Police patrols the streets, watching to make sure that people pick up after their dogs.
There is no such thing as ‘personal accountability’ anymore.
In May of 2016, a three year old boy was visiting the Cincinnati Zoo with his mother and father.
This little boy somehow, someway, ended up inside the gorilla exhibit alongside a wild, 450 lb. gorilla.
As a result, sharpshooters had to shoot and kill the rare, endangered silverback gorilla in order to save the boy’s life.
