Parents,

Decide if your children are more important to you than pit bulls. Pit bulls are replaceable, your children are not. There's no coming back from this unscathed.

I just read that she did not make it. It's just heartbreaking when innocent children are involved. When, will people get a clue about these abnormal breeds of dogs???!
