Okay, I just almost mauled a Mom at Sven's school playground...me = super sensitive today. Boys teasing Sven about his hair and trying to pull his hat off. I thought about my reaction to the boys Mom, was I over-reacting, NO! Does the other boy have to know Sven has Cancer and that is why his hair is different, No! I would think that compassion is born with us, it does not have to be a rule, 'do not tease kids with cancer' Sven has seen at the clinic, all kinds of kids with hair, without hair, with tubes in their noses, shunts in their heads, not once has he looked at them any differently then he looks at his NORMAL classmates, nothing we have taught, this is why I cannot accept a half apology that they do not understand that Sven has cancer and that is why the act itself was not that bad. THINK PEOPLE, live a day in our life. Has he not been through enough. Maybe if Sven did not have cancer I myself would not understand, and I hope that I would have still been compassionate enough to see the pain that people have to go through while dealing with this. Grrrrr.
