I JUST Don't Get This
Apparently some "parents" tired of caring for their disabled toddler thought that tying him up and just letting him die was the way to go.
Look, I get, I really and truly legitimately Get, if caring for a disabled child is too much. Seriously, there are people in this world who can do it and there are people who can't. It doesn't make you a horrible person to admit that you can't. I'll gladly admit that I'm one of those people. I just don't have the patience to deal with it. I have other qualities, but patience is not one of them. This is fine, none of us is perfect.
But isn't there a better solution that killing your kid? Like, there are lots of amazing people out there who adopt and care for disabled kids. There are churches and shelters that care for them. There are so many good-hearted people out there willing to help if you'll just let them. Why would you kill your child?
What, were they ashamed that the world would know that they couldn't do it? Come on, people, most of us can't do it! You would really murder someone for pride? I mean, you would actually take a tiny little innocent boy's life so your neighbors wouldn't know you were just an average selfish person like everybody else?
Yeah, well, we can see how brilliantly your plan worked out for you.
As a completely unrelated aside, there's very little in this world that's more annoying than bosses who ask you the same question five times. One more question and I'm just forwarding an old email instead of writing a new answer...
