Re: Girl drops baby to catch wedding bouquet....

So tragic that the child was discarded over something so trivial.  That was heart wrenching to watch!

That makes you smile?

People, in general, are so pre-occupied now-a-days.  Not paying much attention to anything (like a race horse with side blinders)....... Just be careful walking down a sidewalk.  People are in such a hurry, they'll back up without looking.  Happens all around here, daily.

Never mind

There are many elements: wind, fire, water
But none quite like the element of surprise

I saw the video last night.

 

To me, it looked like a young girl drops the baby.

Where was the mother? The girl holding the baby looks like a preteen.  Who let's an older child carry their child out to catch a bouquet?

If it were a mother, it would have said "woman drops baby" or "mom drops baby." The girl holding the baby is herself a young girl, maybe 12 years old. I'd lay odds that is not her baby and if it is, we already know poor decisions run in her family.

 

When I was that age, I was never allowed to try to catch a bouquet - that was for adults only.

Re: Girl drops baby to catch wedding bouquet....

I really don't know what is wrong with young mothers today.  Why would she need to catch the bouquet - no husband or man of her own?  Would someone want her now with a liability?  That poor child had to have suffered some damage.  All for a stupid wedding bouquet.
