Last week our nation was split once again. Though this time it was not Democrats versus Republicans or Coke versus Pepsi. This time it was the owner of Marcy’s Diner in Portland, Maine, versus the parents of a 21-month-old girl.
We all read the articles, and most of us formed some sort of opinion. I decided to check out the comments sections on a few Facebook posts and articles, and wow! The comments were either calling for the diner to be boycotted or, more prevalently, stating what horrible parents these people must be to let their child scream that long in a public place.
