New Years Day 2010 I decided that I would not make any New Year’s Resolutions. Instead I decided that I would declare 2010 “My Year.” I lodged that belief into my brain; I chanted it and even recited to others as we discussed our plans for the New Year. I knew that I had to give 2010 everything I had because 2009 had kicked my ass in a gruesome way. 2009 had been one of those years where you start off on top and somewhere along the way you got lost, then tangled then dumped at the bottom. By the 2009 holiday season I had begun referring to the year as “WTF happened” I mean seriously 2009 hemmed me up in every way imaginable starting off with ending a relationship. Next there was a car accident, then unexpected expenses that seemed to come out of thin air. I hate to say it but 2009 showed your girl no love at all. It was a piece of work to say the least.
This is what was left of Gene Cranick’s home after it caught fire in Obion County, TN and firefighters stood by watching the home burn to the ground.
I was completely disturbed when I saw the following story on the news.
Firefighters watch as home burns to the ground
A local neighborhood is furious after firefighters watched as an Obion County, Tennessee, home burned to the ground.
The homeowner, Gene Cranick, said he offered to pay whatever it would take for firefighters to put out the flames, but was told it was too late. They wouldn’t do anything to stop his house from burning.
