I apologize in any way that this is hurting every one involved the kids, the parents, and the perpetrators, What I think that hurts the most is the fact that we opened up this store for the children, I will not name them in the post, but I happen to care about children, ask my own, I sent some one to prison for breaking my sons arm at 6 weeks old, I sent my ex to prison for bring drugs into my home, I closed down 3 day cares for child abuse and neglect, I may not be the best parent in world, I have my faults, every one does, but to be told that I am not part of being a citizen of miles city or that I don't care, and that I would allow this to happen to any child in my store or my home is really disconcerting, I have a bond with most the children that come in here, In some cases I know more about them than they lead everyone to believe, they have faith an confidence and trust me enough with what they have to saw, I have come to have many of these children call me mom, we have children come in after school to say hi, get help with homework, and which keeps some out of trouble with the drugs scene or fighting scene that a few are struggling with. I would never allow any one to hurt any of these children, and if you have questions or concerns, bring your child in and come in with them sit down and talk with my husband or myself. I would be happy to talk to any one about anything they want to know. There is a lot of people that have been abused, mentally, physically, psychologically, and emotionally, and should never have been. I have even stopped it at my store between family members. So for someone to say that I would allow any abuse to happen and drag my family name and my store name through the mud is really upsetting to me, I didn't see any other post about other offenders going to any other establishments in town, so please allow me the respect I earn.
