This Made Me Feel Sad

I just got a prayer from this eight-year-old in Alberta, Canada. It went something like this:

"Dear God,
Please help my dog Bandit not to die because he got hit by a car. Bandit and me are best friends and I'll be very very sad if he is dead and can't play with me anymore. Please, God, make Bandit all better and make him so he doesn't die."

Hits you where it hurts, doesn't it? I almost wanted to cry for this poor little kid. It's "Bandit and I are best friends," not "Bandit and me." You poor, poor child. What are your public school systems coming to? It makes me feel so sad to know that you're so dumb.

Oh, and Bandit says, 'Bark!'
