I’ve been browsing Opacity. Motts runs it, and it’s a photo album of his urban explorations. Like any good scrapbooker, he gives information on his photos, most of which feature abandoned hospitals. Plus, there are many informative comments from other people (and very few spurious comments). From his site, I made my way to Jann’s Polio Story which is heart-rending yet uplifting and inspiring.
So what makes me mad? The treatment Jann received when she was hospitalized. I don’t know what I would do if something like this happened to one of my children, but to be denied contact except for every other Sunday would be unbearable and something to fight legally. I’m very glad that things have changed.
I’m also thankful for technology. We no longer have to fear polio in the USA, and maybe, someday soon, that will be true for the rest of the world.
