If this story provokes not one iota of emotion within you, it is my opinion that you do, indeed, have something very much wrong with you.
IMHO, there is nothing more moving than a dying child.
Well, then, please provide the saturn5-approved scale of how much I should be moved by stories of various tragic events so that I may be considered a normal human being! I was very much saddened earlier today when I simply recalled the case, several years ago, of a mother (the wife of a friend of my father's, if you must know) who died rather suddenly leaving two young children. I think that a parent dying when their children are young is especially tragic, but apparently I'm inhuman because that doesn't measure up to a dying child on the saturn5 scale.
By the way, how do you ever manage to get any work done at all, knowing that thousands of children die on this planet every day? Or does your stated attitude--"there is nothing more moving than a dying child"--in fact only apply to a very small fraction of dying children?
They are the people who come into a thread just to say it sucks, that they are untouched, that they don't care, yawn, and other such things that in no way contribute to, and quite often derails a thread. They frequently haunt threads which promote human compassion, or involve dying/abused children, because there's currently a trend in which it's rather chic to (appear to) not care, especially about dying/abused children.
Absolutely right, precocious!! Judge whether or not I am a troll based on my posts in this thread. Don't bother checking whether my 130+ previous posts tend to indicate whether or not I'm the sort of person who trolls purely for getting some sort of cheap thrill out of the reaction of others!
Apparently it's so completely impossible that anyone would not be moved by a dying child, that the only explanation for a post such as mine--since it's unthinkable that different people might have different emotional reactions to the same story, after all we're all clones, right?--is that it's by someone who is moved but is lying about the fact for his own cheap trolling thrills.
