What She Wore: My Levis; short-sleeve tee; olive green hoodie with a fluer-de-lis design on it with gold studs; brown slip-tennis shoes with white stripes.

I just read this on another blog and it makes me absolutely sick. If you’re not into clicking than let me sum in up for you: two boys killed a mentally disabled boy for sport. This was only after they’d spent weeks beating the crap out of him for alcohol and cigarette money.

This kind of stuff stikes fear in the heart of every parent of a child with a disability. I won’t write Charlie’s story for him–there’s no evidence that he’s not intact mentally, but it still scares the crap out of me. Really, we should all be scared when we read stuff like this.

Off to eat bannanas and oatmeal.

    Sadly this isn’t the only case of violence to mentaly disabled men in this country.

    It make me sick to my stomach.

    I fear for the future of my country with young people like this.

    you know how at the end of the school year you hug your students good bye and you go off to enjoy your summer just as they do….And when you return in the fall and those same students have changed profoundly??? Some grow taller, some lose babyfat and all the boys are starting to talk a little deeper???
    It’s the same thing with Charlie…she has been gone and Charlie has grown and his mind has expanded….and it will everyday. I am sure this is something I do not have to tell you…talk to him, sing to him, and play with him as much as you possibly can. I used to sing to the girls and I ALWAYS talked to them. They were bright and happy babies.

    Charlie is an amazing baby!

    I was going to say that I think that would make any parent scared. Heck, that scares me and I’m not nearly to the point of being a parent. I think it would be scary to think that your child could be one of the beaters, too. Yikes, it definitely makes you think.

  4. Sick.

    I am glad to hear Charlie is doing better. I hope you are taking care of yourself.

  5. you know i think this scares any parent…to think that there are kids out there that sick…

    *~* :o) if you do not have a smile today… :o) I will give you one of mine… :o) *~*

  6. Just freaking disgusting is what it is. I cannot understand how anyone thinks that they have the right to do that, but there is no accounting for common sense or the lack of it.

    Hugs my friend,

  7. It is unbelievable to think that ANYONE is capable of doing something like that. The ignorance of our society is sickening…

    Love the picture though! What a sweet baby. He is going to have a truly blessed childhood, to say the least.

  8. Truly a sad story. Made me sick.

    Glad little Charlie is getting over the seizures.
