MAD or SAD?

I can't decide if this article makes me mad or sad?
Mad because of the content or sad because the person that wrote it is so completely STUPID!

I borrowed this letter from Joanne's blog but I also saw it on Six until Me - It very wonderfully illustrates that stupidity is alive and well. It is a letter written to the editor of her local paper:

On Oct. 3, myself and my girlfriend were eating lunch at Burger King. A family came in and sat across the aisle from us. While the father was ordering food, we were shocked and appalled to see a boy inject himself with whatever medication, in front of God and everybody all while sitting at the table. We found this extremely offensive. That sort of business should be done in private. How about a little respect for those around you. Other than the obvious fact that it's not sanitary for those who use the table next, you have no idea how something like that can affect people. People go through a lot in their life and things like that may bring up certain feelings and memories best forgotten. I would like to thank those that day for totally ruining my meal.

I'm glad I found your blog. This community is wonderful. That letter was in my local paper Sunday morning. It has been such an awe inspiring experience to watch how it has stormed the diabetes nation. Thanks for being part of it. I'm excited to follow your blog and to get to know you better.

Hi Laura! Your family is beautiful! I have 3 sons with Type 1. J is 11, diagnosed at 8 months old. B is 7, diagnosed at 5 years old. And L is 5, diagnosed at 2 years old. (I have a 14 year old who is not diabetic.) The first year is a marathon for sure...but we'll be here to help you through it! Welcome to our community!

Hi Laura,
My Son Justin was diagnosed a year ago this month at the age of 7. It was almost 10 months after his diagnosis before I started blogging, but let me tell you... I have been so much stronger since. There are lots of WONDERFUL ladies here. The best support system I have found if I do say so myself. ~Welcome :)
