I have been reading about the NYU Ransom Notes Campaign, and the ads have me boiling. But as usual, I haven't been able to formulate a post to deal with the emotions. Then I saw this post and I was glad... because it says nearly everything.
Pity and stereotypes don't help people. Raising awareness that makes my kids seem like lesser (or super) human beings is not OK just for the sake of raising awareness. I have really been grappling with the whole "price of awareness" issue (among other things). It hurts my head... and my heart.
