Just when I think we’ve come so far in promoting awareness and understanding of the value and rights of those with special needs, a disgusting story like this one out of Corpus Christi, Texas comes along to remind us all how far we still have to go.

The media is reporting that up to 11 current and former employees of a State run home for the intellectually challenged in Texas staged fights with the male residents for ‘entertainment’ and even filmed the action on cell phones. The events are reported to go back as far as 2007, maybe even further.  You can read more about the story here: 
The good news is that arrest warrants are now pending. But I’m still left asking what has happened to our civility and concern for fellow human beings? Appalling. 
We must do better, America, and good parenting is a great place to start.
