WTH is wrong with people?

In reference to me getting the school system to place my son in a private school since the public school system doesn't have a program or school to accomodate him.  

Someone actually told me that the school system shouldn't waste that kind of money (private school tuition) on a child with a terminal illness.  She also stated I should teach him the life skills at home or put him in a group home.  

People are just cruel.

You know my opinion on that, and none of it would meet the CM standards on using appropriate language.  :). Some people are just rude and ignorant.

I find it sad that the way I was spoken to IS within standards for CM.  

Quoting Momof4AEMW:

 All I can say is "karma".  And the way you were spoken to is not within this group's standards.  Hugs to you and Brady.

Excuse me for this statement but I do hope you told them to get bent,our children are just as much a part of society as the next person. Yeah they me behind or slower at some things but my son is a genius at mathematics and he can become anything he puts his mind too. I'm never giving up on him and you should fight back harder than before.

I'm sorry to hear that you had to deal with that. You would think that if someone was so heartless as to actually feel that way, they would at least have enough sense to keep it to themselves!
