So I ducked into the local Kmarket yesterday to see if they had anything that would fit onto my wife's Christmas list. As I was leaving the store empty handed I saw a little girl maybe, maybe 8 years old, in front of the main entrance. She's watching incoming cars like she's waiting for someone to pick her up. She's still there about 5 minutes later. 10 or 15 people walk by her without giving her a second glance. I get back out of my vehicle to ask her if she wants to use my phone to call anyone. As I approach she walks back in the store. Still not a parent in sight. How does a parent leave a kid that age unattended in a public setting on a day that includes Newtown Conn?
