i didn't watch oprah, nor am i going to

i don't LIKE oprah at all. but that's neither here nor there. i don't know if i would be able to handle actually hearing charla nash tell her story. so i didn't watch and no, i didn't click any links to see any pictures either (and i won't). i just think ms nash is one hell of a brave and courageous woman.

i just can't imagine. i just can't imagine

oh and p.s. WILD ANIMALS SHOULD NOT BE LIVING IN YOUR BATHTUB, IN YOUR LIVING ROOM, OR IN YOUR BACK YARD. i've felt this way all along. it's not fair to the animal AND they are indeed WILD no matter how tame you think they are.

Chimp Victim Speaks To Oprah

The Stamford woman injured in a chimpanzee attack showed her face on national television today, speaking with Oprah Winfrey in her first interview since the attack.

Charla Nash, 56, lost both hands, her vision, nose, lips and eyelids in the attack. Much of her scalp is also missing, a piece of her leg was grafted to create a nose, and she has a hole in her face through which she can eat and drink from a straw. Doctors were able to reattach one of her thumbs.

She wears a hat with a veil hanging from it that covers her face to avoid scaring people, she told Winfrey.

Tabloids have been vying for a picture of her, and a guard stands posted outside Nash's room at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio to protect her from photographs, Winfrey said. Winfrey said Nash decided to reveal her face on the show because she wanted to do it in her own terms. And in the interview with Winfrey, which was taped Tuesday, Nash said she was not concerned with how people would see her.................

i love animals but i'd not keep a lion or an antelope. we're not meant to have them.

charla, i can't stop thinking about her though. like i said, i didn't see her and i don't have any idea what she said to oprah. i just know my thoughts and prayers are with her
