Just Need To Vent

Anyway, we probably all have our stories about things like June mentioned. I just had to get that off my chest. I have little tolerance for stupidity, like the kind June spoke of.
As for the vaccine issue, some people do have problems, but it cannot be denied the risks to the entire population outweigh those. I do know it is terrible that some people suffer, I am not cold and unfeeling. I am looking at the big picture, as I think Ed is. Eradicating diseases that have killed/injured millions is the bigger picture that has to be looked at. Personally I would not want my children in school with someone who did not get a vaccination. I think it is wrong to expose others to something like that. In this state though, all children have to have proof of vaccinations before entering school though, so I do not have to worry unless I move. I think in a few years it will not even be an issue. Things like this have happened and been addressed throughout history. There are many issues we can look back on and wonder "What were they thinking?" It is obviously hard to be the exception, I understand that, so please no hate mail! I jsut believe the greater good has to be considered.

I also know a perfectly healthy fellow my age who ended up in a wheelchair permanently paralyzed and mentally compromised as a result of a vaccine reaction. I am glad I don't have kids, because it would be a hard decision for me.
All of this, celiac, vaccine reactions, everything -- it just goes to show that aside from basic similarities that make us human, we're biochemically individual and unique -- and wonderfully made, if I might add!
