A moment of mourning for a 2-year-old little girl who was fatally wounded by her 5-year-old brother. While children accidently shooting one another is aĀ unfortunatelyĀ a recurring story, this little boy wasn’t tinkering with his parents’ unattended firearm collection. Not in the least.

Karen Green Braithwaite of New York, NY is petitioning Mattel to offer party supplies featuring Barbies of color.Ā Apparently, if a little girl wants to throw a Barbie-themed birthday party, she’d better be cool with her banners, tablecloths, plates, cups and napkins featuring blonde-haired, blue-eyed Barbie.
