I seriously cannot stand another story of a child left in a hot car to suffer an agonizing death. I want this message out there once and for all.


I want to see it everywhere. I want it tweeted all across the damn world. Look at the articles below and tell me if you don’t think it’s about time those of us who have common sense stand up and help these innocent children and pets.

I have made a vow to myself that wherever I go, I do not simply walk past the cars around me but glance into each and every one in my path. I think we get so focused on where we are going and just stare straight ahead. Maybe if those of us who actually have a brain in our heads take a sweep of the cars parked around us on our way into the mall or store, we might be able to save a life!

Thirteen children have already died in the U.S. this year from being trapped in sweltering cars, and one advocacy group is pushing parents to “look before they lock” so the number doesn’t rise with the temperature.

  1. I’ve had six children, along with numerous nieces and nephews, and now a grandson. I honestly cant see how anyone could forget that they had a child in the car. When my babies were in car seats they were always in the middle of the seat so i could see them at all times. How does someone “forget” about another person in your vehicle? Especially with kids. I think more people are using this as an excuse, than actually forgetting. I never once forgot my child was in a car. Ever. I just dont understand it.

    • I couldn’t agree with you more. I have so many opinions about this my head hurts. The one I keep going back to is that these people are so wrapped up in themselves and their smartphones, personal agendas and idiotic objectives that their priorities are standing on their heads.. I don’t want to hear about these new devices and tricks to help you remember you have a child or even a pet in the car when you park it and get out. If you need to have a trick or a device to remind you a living, breathing life is on board, you don’t deserve the privilege of a child or even a dog.

  2. I love dogs, but it’s odd how leaving a dog in a hot car is considered more worthy of reprimand than leaving a child in one. Sadly, there will always be selfish, stupid people in the world. There is no ‘forgetting’, only ‘I’ll say anything if you don’t punish me’.

    Great post.
