Sixty miles west of Boston, Massachusetts there is the small New England town of Sturbridge. Located at the junction of I-90 (The Mass Pike), and I-84 it has become known as the "Crossroads of New England". The town was first settled over 300 years ago, and like other small New England towns it has grown just enough over the years to be in a difficult place today. How do we embrace the future without forgetting how we got to our present? How do we attract the right kind of growth, and maintain who we are? And, what about our culture out here in Central Massachusetts?
These pages will cause one to think about how to protect what we have, our future direction, and how to move on in the very best way.
Those thoughts, and other ramblings, will hopefully inspire more thought, conversation, action, and occasionally a smile...
...seems to be working so far

"Marge, They Must Be Running A Special On Stupid Pills Up There In New Hampshire"
I can't imagine being witnessing something as horrible as this as an adult, never mind as a child, and neither can this New Hampshire couple, they are suing SeaWorld for the trauma the tragedy caused their son.
"There seemed to be no plan as to what to do to save Dawn," the lawsuit said. "The SeaWorld employees were acting in an unorganized and chaotic manner."
Oh, I don't know, maybe Dawns family should be the ones suing since Dawn was obviously the one traumatized the most. No matter how you argue it, the victim is the looser, the witnesses don't even place.
Accidents, and tragedy's are just that. They happen. It's life. Unfortunately, a lot of the time they happen when someone is looking.
Give the kid a hug, show him you love him, and be there if he is scared,or has worries. That's what parents do. That's what you should continue to do. Money won't give you the power to do it better, or longer, or with more emotion. The money would always be the money that the kid was paid because he watched a girl get killed by the whale, and nothing more.
