Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls of all ages, gather round....it's this weeks episode of "I got it via email so it must be true!" Settle down now, I know you're all excited. Can he top last week's inferno? Let's wait and see..... * * * * * *

Subject: Fw: if u delete this u'r heartless

"The only thing that stands between a man and what he wants from life is often merely the will to try it and the faith to believe that it is possible" Dear Reader I am a single mother of four kids: ages five, three and a half, 17 month, and two week old baby girl. God has blessed me with three beautiful, healthy children. Until recently things were going great for us, even though we struggled financially at times (my part-time job was not e! nough to support us). Then, the tragedy struck on January 13th. My oldest, Matt, got hit by a car while playing outside. ( The driver never got fined - it was a hit and run). After agonizingly long weeks of hospitalization, we did not think he would live but thank godness is he alive right now ... but barely. He is still in the hospital in the comatose condition. Doctors say he will be a vegetable for the rest of his live, for as long as he lives and even if he does come out of the coma - his brain is too damaged for him to lead a normal life. My insurance coverage run out and I can't afford hospital bills. Right now I owe a hospital over 500,000 dollars so far. ! ! Shortly, after the accident has happened, my 87 year old grandmother, with whom I was really close (she raised me as a child), suffered a stroke and could not live on her own anymore. I took her in. All that happened while I was pregnant with Carissa. Because of all this severe stress that I've been through, Carissa was not only a premie but was born with Down's syndrome as well as chronic colitis. She is also missing fingernails on her right hand. She is in the hospital as well because she needs to be monitored 24/7. Right now I am at the lowest point of my life: I don't have a job - taking care of three sick family members that are so dear to me is a full time job -! I can't afford to pay for my tiny appartment, my car got taken away because no payment, not to mention the debt with a hospital! I know you are not obligated to do anything: you are free to delete this email without giving it a second thought, but please listen to the cry from mothers heart! We had worked out a deal with AOL where for every 12 forwards I will get 15 cents. Please, don't harden your heart, send this email to everyone on your list. This is crucial for our survival!! God bless you all! Sincerely, * * * * * * *

Maybe I should just be quiet.....

    *Ugh*. Two questions come to mind: What kind of person would take the time to write this? and What kind of person actually forwards this crap onward?

    Two answers: A moronic idiot & a gullible fool??

    Eh! Who thinks up of these things?!? Geez!

    OOH that's bad! What kid gets Down's Syndrome from the mother being stressed out? And what country do they supposedly live in where people that poor do not receive assistance, either welfare or health insurance, or both?

    You'd have to be both a dumbass and living under a rock to forward this along!

    where do you find this stuff? It really appears in your email account??

    Believe it or not, these are all genuine emails that are forwarded to me, some by highly religious colleagues, others by clients.

    It's mind-boggling, isn't it?!
