So very sad.

We took Michael to his cranio appointment yesterday morning. There is a pediatrician's office on the first floor of the building. Generally, when we go on Saturdays the building is empty and quiet. Yesterday, there was a line of parents and children (mostly boys) winding through the lobby.

When I realized they were all there for flu shots, I almost cried. Seeing all those beautiful faces, and knowing that the shot they were about to get was full of mercury made me want to cry. I wanted to ask the parents if they knew what they were doing to their children, if they truly understood the risks. But, we were running late, Michael had elevators to ride, and I didn't have the strength to fight any more battles.
