Before Megan's group performed, the Little Mermaids did their number. One little girl had to be literally dragged out by her mother and then abandoned in front of all those people. She was crying and refusing to dance. She looked up at her mom, her eyes begging to be taken out of there. Instead her mom mouthed to her, "You are in big trouble."
I don't know what came over me but tears just started pouring down my cheeks. The more I tried to stop them, the more they came. Pregnancy hormones aside, I felt so sorry for that little humiliated girl. I had to fight the urge to go snatch her up, hug and kiss her, and tell her it was ok that she didn't want to perform. Seriously, it was a nursing home performance. It was supposed to be fun. What is wrong with some people?????
