You just summed it up perfectly, Tisia. If they can't value the lives of an animal, then they aren't likely to value the lives of a fellow human, either.

it seems like there are too many kids that don't really seem to value anything nowadays (I feel old saying that, lol). they don't seem to really value money or objects because their parents will just buy them whatever they want. like I mentioned before, I do plan on spoiling my kids some, but my main goal in parenting is going to be to make them into responsible members of society and part of that is not always giving them what they want because that's just not how life works

*sneaks in with her 9 bettas in tow* Can I join this little party? I've read up to page 20 something...probably read more tomorrow argh sleep.

Well my addiction is kinda bad...had 1 betta last year..got 9 now XD my newest being Kiwi and oldest being Oscar.

Also got my sorority that's been up and running since May 12th. Haven't had any major problems though once ina while one will get angry and take out anothers fins which grow right back in about a week? O.o Also can female bettas pms because I swear Red has some issues this week..

So all my bettas: Oscar my first he's a crowntail got him 1-24-2010, Next came Dezzy my natural female, then Red, then Candles then Violet and Blue..Blue ended up passing away from Dropsy though :( so next came Pensri(who I call Penny now). Next we got Blackbird then Jude who's my first HM and what I figured would be my last betta but now we have Kiwi who literally was dying when I took him home from Walmart. ....just look at my sig XD

Lol! Bettawolf, You must have seen how off topic we were then :D! Welcome, join the party although we do not promise to cure you, your addiction may get worse !
I started a sorority too, last saturday so they still don't like each other yet XD
Your bettas sound lovely, I'm sorry about Blue.. Dropsy really sucks. Kiwi is a cutie btw!

Bettawolf, I read your thread about Kiwi, I'm so glad he's doing well now. I thought it was sweet how your sorority stuck by him.

Just beware when your sorority establishes..vicious little devils. Oh they stuck by him alright to the point where he was well protected and whenever I would go to change his water I would go and get bit by my females XD figures thanks girls just feeling the love right now
