Liberals will hate this story.

Government didn't save the day - a 4 year old girl did.

Fishermen, acting on gut, find crash site, 2 girls - Yahoo! News

"It was amazing that the little 4-year-old I have a little 4-year-old, too, she's almost 5 was able to get her little sister out and do that," he added. "It just blows my mind that she could do that in that situation. I don't know if she waited until morning, when they could see, but, you know, it just makes me want to cry."
I just re-read the story, and I am tearing up as well.

Well done Aryanna.

Neat story, but using it to take a shot at liberals is idiotic and stupid.

That wouldn't be neccesary if liberals on this forum had not demonized people who prepare for adverse situations.

Use the search tool and type in "preppers".

You will find a lot of hate from the "tolerant" left.

What does being a 'prepper' have to do with this story?

Taking shots at liberals is what many on this forum do best.

The little girl took care of her sister and herself, and survived in the face of an adverse situation.

That is the definition of what a prepared and self sufficient person does.

The 4 year old girl had the presence of mind to realize that her mother was dead and that she was in charge.

Liberals wouldn't understand.

Wth?

I think what really happened is that a 4 year-old used some common sense and guts.
Again, irrelevant to 'preppers' or any of that stuff.

Btw, I am a conservative, and I think that political leaning has nothing to do with this situation.

There is no shortage of ways to make fun of liberals or conservatives, but I don't see how this story has anything to do with either.
