End of the world

Ok....I think we have all figured out we are still here! I read an article on Friday that interviewed a family. The mother and father believed that Saturday was the end of the world and their three teenage kids didn't believe it. The mom and dad and made the kids leave school and drive to times square to stand around with signs about "judgement day". What I thought was strange about the family dynamic was when the mom was interviewed she said something like....well it is the end of the world and wish my kids were going to go with us to Heaven but apparently they aren't I guess some things aren't meant to be. Ummm....that is a pretty messed up way to parent. I mean if these parents truly, truly believe that their children are going to spend eternity in Hell...they should have been at home trying to convince them of whatever it was the parents believed was going to keep the kids out of hell. Seriously, what kind of message does that "whatever" attitude send to the kids! Instead the parents wanted to stand in Times Square wearing sandwhich boards....priorities people!

The kids were embarassed and the teenage daughter was talking about a party she wanted to go to Saturday night but thought her parents probably wouldn't let her go. I would think after they were willing to let her go to Hell they would be willing to let her go to a party.

I want to know what happened to that family! Did the daughter get to go to the party?

that is soooo something I would be wondering too... did she get to go?? and does it mean that she's off the hook about dating and drugs and all that since she's "going to Hell anyway?" makes you wonder.... crazy!!!!

Can't wait to see y'all this weekend!!
