These stories just make you despair of humanity.

My friend’s much-loved young son died in his sleep last week and his memorial was one of the most wrenching events I’ve ever attended; tiny coffin, everyone sobbing. I just cannot imagine what would drive someone to physically abuse and essentially kill a baby.

There are entire segments of the population—here and elsewhere—who are so far removed from civilized society that things like whatever led up to this poor child's death are allowed to happen and nobody dares to speak up about it.

unfathomable. its just too hard to believe there are people like this among us.

first thing i thought of was give the damn kid to me. i'll do whatever it takes to help him avoid this. so many of us would.

May he Rest In Peace. Terrible Tuesday indeed…

It’s about as bad as it gets. I can’t fathom what possibly happened and how he came to be there. I probably don’t want to know. These are the kind of news stories that you don’t want to come across, but are important for us all to know.

I agree. There’s so many terrible scenarios that could’ve led to his death.

This kind of news plagues me for days. That poor baby.

This is heart wrenching. That poor baby. I can’t imagine his suffering and pain. I was really hoping he would pull through when I read about this last week.

that's what really pains me ... the hours leading up to his demise. the fear, the pain.

no way in hell a god exists. no way.

Its OTR the vast majority of the residential is SE.

Colloquial term.

But that’s… not a thing


Deanocracy t1_iswzyth wrote

Yeah… it very much is a thing to say SE DC and refer to the area over the river.

And not Eastern Market.

Not among anyone I know who lives there 🤷🏻‍♀️. Sort of reminds me of all the folks who refer to anything east of the river as Anacostia.
