    The audio was one of the most creative, chilling and nightmarish things I have ever heard. I find it a horrifying commentary that lately, on some major stores, I have seen warning signs or decals on their entrance doors reminding people to not leave their child in the car. This is a good thing, by its intention, but the fact that it is necessary??? What is wrong with us? Did you ever hear of this happening, ever, in the 50s or 60s or any time until the last few years??? And regardless of what penalties society may hand out, I think tht there could be no Hell to compare with the knowledge that we had caused the death of a child or a pet. Honestly, I don't think I could live with that knowledge but would probably end my life. In fact, i once backed over a stray cat that had walked behind my car as I backed out of the driveway, and I was so stricken that I had heart palpitations and an extreme anxiety attack and had to take my heart meds after I buried the little creature. I cannot even imagine what it would have been like if I had left a living thing in my car and had such a result. My animal family trusts me to look out for them protect them and nurture them, and that I do. But stories like these cause a bone chilling feeling and a hollow feeling in the pit of the stomach.

    "What is wrong with us? Did you ever hear of this happening, ever, in the 50s or 60s or any time until the last few years???" You indeed ask a valid question. In fact, THE valid question. This isn't about things being reported now that always used to happen but got swept under the carpet. It's a new phenomenon, and symptomatic of a greater ill. Other variants – not being present in a restaurant with friends or family in favour of texting and facebooking with people who aren't there. Doing the same while driving. Photographing food instead of enjoying everything your Dog would enjoy about it. No ability to be alone in Nature without music or vapid information being streamed constantly into your ears. It all leads to loss of connection with what's going on, and your necessary role in it.
