I was going to copy a story of the torture and murder of a woman in Alton, Illinois who had a developmental disability. The details are horrid and disgusting. It’s the kind of stuff that makes one feel nauseous. It makes one want to do something. Then I got to thinking.
I’ve written about similar stories on this blog before. In fact, as recently as March 7th, I put a story out there of medical neglect of an Oregonian with mental health issues who eventually committed suicide. And guess what? No comment.
Are people so numb that stories like these are unimportant to them? Are the people who tell you “nobody really cares” correct? It simply amazes me.
