Not Suing? How Un-American

Maybe the story about the sisters who were injured by the M&M balloon at the Macy’s Parade should give me some hope for humanity.
"We just count our blessings that they weren't seriously injured," the father said.

The family won't sue because it was "a freak accident," and "accidents just happen," he said.
I’m sure there are some lawyers tearing their hair out about this one. Thankfully, the worst of the injuries only required a few stitches. I am thankful, also, about the not suing part. It is more in keeping with the idea that a tragedy or near tragedy is more than a shot at the tort lottery.
