      Really Kathie. Dumbest comment ever. Have you ever driven in a car? If god wanted you to drive, you would have been born a car. A person was injured no need to been cruel. People do dangerous activities all the time. If a kid was injured while rollerblading would you have the same attitude?

      If God had wanted you to comment, he’d have provided you with a brain first. What a retarded thing to say.
