    Just reading the lyrics *heard so many times before but not attended to, I thought of my son. The pain was too great to read much of the article but will try again tomorrow. Thank you, Nerf.

    These are the kinds of things daughter thinks about. I was struck especially by the choice to be kind instead of to hate.

    Thank you for posting, nerfherder.

    It is an interesting thread. I will tell daughter about it if she seems ever to need supportive witness.

    I can relate. This isn't just about how the person with mental illness is treated - often, those of us who are immediate family get treated the same way, just because we are prepared to stand up for our disadvantaged family member.
