During the week that we were told Eli probably had SMA, a postcard appeared on Post Secret that led many people to sign the petition and raised some serious awareness of SMA. Today, I found this postcard. As we go into yet another difficult anniversary, I find it fitting that one of my frequent complaints shows up on PS. I wish people could understand how the words they *think* are comforting really just piss me off and make me want to slap them. If I told you I planned to go out and kill someone or if I saw a man dying my plan would be to do NOTHING to help, would you think that was a good plan? A plan that that person's family would find comforting? No. So your god planning for my son to die or doing nothing to cure him is NOT comforting. Please think before you speak, especially when dealing with grieving families.
Now they just need something to deal with the other stupid line of "everything happens for a reason".
