Saddest Story You'll Read Today

Remember the story of the three children who died in the RV fire last month?  Well, according to the Oklahoman, the parents are now being charged with felony child neglect. 
The mother whose three children died Jan. 4 in a motor home fire had left them alone there, locked inside, while she was under the influence of methamphetamine, police allege.
Drug use, neglect and now, the mother of these kids is pregnant again, with the baby due in June.

It has all the makings of a Lifetime, made-for-television movie, doesn't it?  The sadness quotient in this story, however, is off the charts.  Three small children trapped in an RV - trapped because their mother locked them in the vehicle, as it burns around them.  And now we learn that methamphetamine may be involved. 

No doubt, more will come out on this case as it progresses, but it is truly one of the saddest stories you're hear about today and perhaps even this month.
