You know, I am ashamed of people in this day and age. I am ashamed of what we as a country tolerate and find acceptable. We sit around and wonder why we have kids that bully, kids that try to hurt themselves....even kill themselves because they are bullied, and kids who ultimately try to kill other kids in the act of bullying or because they have been bullied to the point of wanting to do their tormentors in. We wring our hands and say..."I just don't understand," or we turn a blind eye because we are so desensitized to the negativity that we just accept it is part of our culture. Do we ever stop and wonder how it has come to this? I can tell you how. I got angry beyond words last night when I saw a recent article and I can tell you...sleep has in no way ebbed the anger.
this post. After reading it and listening to the piece by Louis CK, I was literally as angry as I have been in a long time. What is wrong with people today? When did we lose such respect for both ourselves and others that we decided picking on someone weak and defenseless was okay?
Now I know that this is a political thing and apparently we now live in a political world with an "anything goes" mentality. My question though....when did liberals stop seeing conservatives as human beings....and vice versa....and mores the question, when did children (especially special needs kids) suddenly become fair game?
Okay....I have ranted. Do I feel better? Not really....because this is who we have become....a nation full of bully's who honestly believe that the ends justify the means. And I am sad. I am sad for the world that Z has already had to contend with and for what the future may hold for David. I guess it is just a good thing that I don't plan on running for public office!
Your Photo Here.............(Day 30)
Under the Influence!
This picture is of Z yesterday after they gave him pain meds in the ER. This was the first time since Sunday night that he had been pain free. As you can see...he was truly feeling no pain and the expression on his face is one of pure......... I got nothin'! I have no idea what to compare that expression to. All I know is that it is definitely one for the family album.....not to mention....the blog!
And on that note....I wish you a blessed Good Friday!
