First the bad:
In the local news was a story of a high-speed car crash that killed three teenagers and injured two others. The girl who died was 13. She was drunk. She was pregnant. The uncle of one of those killed was filmed saying the police need to do a better job of patrolling that stretch of road.
Now the good:
I was at the public library and saw a teenage girl with microcephaly and her mother picking out books in the Young Adult section. Then the mother was choosing DVDs to borrow and asked the girl which of the ones she should pick; the girl chose one and her mother teased her about having a crush on the lead actor of the movie. If she had been born when I was, she might have spent her entire life in an institution. If she had been born in my parents' generation, she might've been sold to a circus. Now she's just a teenage girl.
