The Baby and the Window

It was a really hot day in September in San Antonio, when a woman accidentally locked her 10-month-old baby niece inside a parked car. Frantically, the mother and aunt ran around the car in near hysteria while a neighbor attempted to unlock the car with a clothes hanger. Soon the baby was turning purple and had foam on its mouth, and now it had become a life-or-death situation.

Another man came rushing up with a tire tool and smashed the back window of the car in order to free the little girl. This actually saved the little girl’s life, but then the lady was mad because he broke the window.

So here is a good example of choosing between what is important and what is not, in this case the baby or the window. Sometimes priorities get out of order.
