I must admit I refused to participate in all the excitement of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. In all honestly, I much rather just donate to this needy cause than to act silly.
Yes, call me Scrooge!
I do realize people were having FUN for a wonderful cause. I truly think it was awesome, but I just didn’t feel like getting cold ice poured on my head.
So yay to you if you participated!
However, just like everything else in this world….some people took it too far.
A group of Bay Village High School students are in trouble after playing a cruel prank on their 15-year-old autistic classmate.
Police say the students convinced their classmate to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
However, instead of filling the bucket with ice water they filled it with urine and spit. Then while recording, the bucket was dumped from a roof and onto the special needs teenager. The video was later posted to Instagram.

I do believe God works all things for good, as he did in this one case.
