This is a child we're talking about.
We wonder how this sad event will scar this child for the rest of his life.
The moral test of government is how it treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the aged; and those in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped.
Hubert H. Humphrey.
No smart quip. No pithy comment. No wisecrack.
Just a deep sadness for the child and outrage that we participate in a system that does this and much much worse to our children.
See you Monday when we hope we are feeling a bit more hopeful.
