  1. A true WTF irritating story and shitty situation. Can’t believe that the state neglected to ensure that these places were accredited. These were state-funded and run. Really, WTF. I’d feel just like these young people – hopeless, frustrated, sick, lost, angry. Hell, I feel that way on their behalf, seeing what happened.

    Hugs, my friend. Let’s up that someone steps up and makes this right for these people.

    1. Hello Michael. I agree. Talk about throwing away people! This is an example of profit over people and republican view of governing. It is also the future and way that children without power or the vote will be treated in the dystopian future the religious right wants to push the US back into, the days of massive child orphanages where children were used for free labor to businesses and abuse of all kinds was experienced by the children daily. Why the right in the US wants to drive the country back to days that the rest of the world think are abhorrent is something I cannot understand. I am worried about what century the US will end up in. Hugs
