“She was murdered by society.”

No, she died or a disease.

“I will forever hate the majority of adult humans on this planet.”

Then you should seek out professional help. Being a misanthrope helps no one - especially the misanthrope.

One would have to believe that the majority of adult humans on this planet wouldn't be real crazy about you either.

Yes and what if God hates the majority of adults? Why He would not have sent His son Jesus the Savior.

They showed up to feel good about themselves and brag to their friends that they were there. That is the only reason...that and try to get on TV.

Excuse me... I not only live in this area but I happen to know many of the people who loved this child, prayed for her, held fund raisers to help with the families mounting expenses, organized the caroling event on short notice and today grieve her loss to us for nothing more than to show love in a careless world... You are an a$$hole...

While I AGREE with you abut the “vermin” in society....even IF all of the “wasted money” had gone to “research” there is NO way to know if the outcome would have been different. ..

I’d like to know the racial/ethnic composition of the crowd. It would be a great photo if it showed Americans, black, white, yellow, brown, red, etc. all singing to comfort a dying child.

If you see any such photos, can you tell us what you see, and where they were posted.

There are a lot of good Americans out there who look past race, ethnicity, gender, and economic status in order to help one another.

That is the story the media often refuses to cover in depth.

My father died of liver cancer and my mother died of Leukemia, so I understand the loss, but for one so young, it is much harder to accept.

I saw the 4 minute film from in front of Laney’s house. Forgot whether they were white, black, etc.

Sure looked like a good “American” crowd to me. I’ll settle for that on Christmas, or any other day of the year.

That’s what makes us “special”.

I watched the last video you linked, and now I can’t see straight. What a beautiful little girl, to have a hand in this blessing, of thousands of people from all walks of life coming together in His name, for the love of a child.

Yes Max, the crowd was an American quilt. Americans are still shining the light of God. Satan tries to extinguish, or at least conceal that light, but darkness cannot extinguish or conceal light. It can only emphasize the light. Praise God!

Delaney Brown asked for CHRISTmas carols. Frosty the Freakin’ Snowman is not a carol, nor were any of the others this crowd sang. Did the secular bastards ruin this girl’s last wish with a craptacular PC list of songs? These people are garbage. If I was there, believe me, Christian songs would have been sung.

You are incorrect. A quick look on youtube at just two videos showed that at least two traditional religious Christmas carols were sung - and that was just a quick scan, not a comprehensive search.

Don't abuse people without checking your facts a little. There are plenty of people who deserve criticism, but this group are not it.

It is my belief that we are here to prove we are worthy of the kingdom of heaven. Some of us are good, and some of us are evil, this world is temporary His kingdom is eternity. Souls are recycled until His judgement is made. Suffering in this life means nothing compared to eternity in His blessings.

I too hate the vile evil creatures that do horrific things to innocence's, but I trust that goodness will be rewarded, not on this Earth but in the Kingdom of Heaven.
