Days after a horrific and fatal alligator attack on a 2-year-old boy at a Walt Disney World resort, social media condolences have flowed nonstop for the distraught parents.
The reaction was very different last month when a 4-year-old crawled through a barrier, then fell into the gorilla pen at the Cincinnati Zoo. Zoo keepers, deeming the situation life-threatening, shot the western lowland gorilla, Harambe, which had grabbed hold of the child.
The incident was filmed by zoogoers, and thus began online public shaming of the child’s parents and the zoo’s decision to shoot Harambe. The social media hashtag #JusticeForHarambe went viral. Members of the media, parents and animal activists accused the boy’s parents of neglect. So much that a petition on change.org (started by Sheila Hurt of Cincinnati) aimed to hold them responsible. Within a few days, the petition had more than half a million signatures. Ultimately, police decided no charges were warranted. Click here to read more.

Sunday the most segregated day of the week where white supremacist gather together and blacks to so-called worship the same God.
It is important that you work to be saved by God and true. “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven (Matthew 7:21).
