Preschoolers troubled by oil disaster “throwing desks, kicking chairs” — “With this, people do not have hope” says day-care center operator


Oil gusher is dead, but not residents' anguish, Associated Press, September 27, 2010:

Excerpts

Kim Thai, a single mother of four... worked as a sorter on a shrimp boat before oil began pouring into the Gulf... "I spend a lot of time thinking now when I can go to work, how I can hold this family together," said Thai, of Bayou La Batre. "I worry about my kids seeing me this way and them getting sad or it affecting their school work." ...

Tejuania Nelson, who runs a day-care center in fishing-dependent Grand Bay, Ala., said preschoolers whose parents were left jobless because of the spill are lashing out in unsettling ways.

"They're throwing desks, kicking chairs," she said. "It's sad. With this, people do not have hope. They cannot see a better time."

  • Please flee the Gulf, you are not only being poisoned to death there is going to be a huge methane explosion and tidal wave that is going to kill millions, see Linda Newkirks prophecies at prophecies.org book 12, chapter 74.

  • The children are acting this way because this is the way their parents are behaving at home; i.e. throwing and breaking shit. Should we expect to see a sharp increase in domestic violence as a result of the oil spill?

    I understand rage as a function of despair but how does lashing out in blind rage help anything? Parents, instead of smashing up your houses and setting a poor example for your children, take to the streets. Stand on the streetcorner and scream. Better than smashing up inanimate objects.
