mental illness

Below is the URL for a blog post everyone should read.

It is not political.

It is not a media twist, or expose for the purpose of getting a story.

It is the words of a Mother with a son who could be the next shooter.

I know it is the Holidays, and we don't want to think about things like this
I don't know what can be done, or what we as individuals can do.

All I know is it is time to help parents like this.



  1. Tears!! Thanks for posting this thought provoking article.

  2. We read this article you're referring to this afternoon and strangely on the 6 o'clock news they were interviewing the author about her post.

    It still scares the hell out of people just thinking of the countless number of individuals that would fall into this same category. Sadly this is not just happening here in North America but around the globe. Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  3. This is an amazing article - I can't imagine what a parent would do in this situation, and she has dealt with her son acting like this for YEARS. She obviously loves him very much, but is so afraid of him. Also not fair to his siblings to have to live in fear. How sad for the mom and sibs and the son.

    It was such a bad decision to close all the mental health facilities and just throw people with mental problems into the jails.

  4. thanks for sharing the link..all these troubled people are all someone's child, and that is the sad part that some fall through the cracks or just don't get the help they need.
