can't begin to imagine the sort of trauma that would cause this sort of response. ...and may God spare me from it.


Actually I can that's what hurts the most. A ex-employee of mine had an infant die from Sid's. I had to send the man home regularly he could not make it through the day for a couple months. It was so sad to watch his despair, it touched me a gruff old bastard deeply.

That's something else I've managed to avoid.

I have no kids, and all my friends children are healthy little tykes.

My thought was perhaps he was near to death with a terminal illness and she lovingly fulfilled her young child's dyng wish.

My second thought was all the security cameras that are everywhere! If a person with tattoos and a shaved head lingered for a couple few hours at that park, sitting on a bench, you bet they would be jumping all over that!

Compassion and empathy are great qualities. Fortunately when you read this thread. It will help you ascertain which members have both of those qualities.

That is a very pleasant thought.


But I think that if she knew it was coming it would help the coping mechanisms. For her to have such a reaction to me it seems like it was sudden and she could not deal with it.

When my mother passed away in their bed, my father's immediate reaction (after making the dreaded calls) was to brush her hair, sponge bath her, all the while pouring out his sorrow for any sadness or pain he had caused throughout their 43 year marriage. He spoke of deep love and pride for her raising their 7 daughters. It was both sad and beautiful at the same time.

It speaks to the very essence of our humanity and the obvious loss of it for each other. Yes, I could have easily not shared this sad, sad story but I wanted to evidence what is clearly eluding us and maybe, just maybe a soft smack into "LOVE thy neighbor" would spark something in those of us who "felt" the emotions of this story.

No offense to you, Super Mod, but our continued suppression and rug sweeping of these incidents goes directly to the root of our social disconnect .

I do see that as well.

Not as heartbreaking as the original OP but my grandfather passed when I was 5 years old. I could not understand. At the funeral I was made to wear my suit and tie. The whole time I felt that the tie was choking me. To this day I will not wear a tie unless it would be a matter of life and death.Deep grief does strange things...

So heart breaking! Rest in peace sweet child. There are so many things that pull at our heart strings, things we can't do anything about. We hate that they happen, but they happen.

How horrible an experience for you and beyond devastating for that poor mother.

I disagree. But thank you for your opinions.

I think even the remotest possibility that that mother stood pushing her son in the swing OVERNIGHT supersedes exact timeline.

I was 9 when my grandfather passed. Tiny little township but everyone in his community attended to pay respects. My Uncle took my hand and pulled me forcibly up to the open casket and instructed me to kiss Gramps goodbye. I broke free and found my father really quickly. I will never forget that event. At a funeral, I sit as far away from the casket as I possibly can.

Trauma is scarring and this poor dear mother must feel it with every breath.

Indeed. Flashbacks can be equally disturbing. I am sorry you went through that experience.

Blessings.

I am so moved by the majority of the replies to this thread. It brought a common, primal need to share our experiences and sorrow , and open discussion of incomprehensible loss of an innocent.

I wondered how many would take the path of blame, foul play, and discourse.

ATS has caring, beautiful souls.

just to point out - a foresnsic examination will determine if the infant died in the swing - or died elsewhere and was moved , post-mortem

would it be that onerous to wait for this result instead of speculating ?

In my work I had to announce/witness a few recent death and if it's too much to cope with the mind just 'snap'. Much like a breaker circuit opens to protect the rest of the system. The event is not accepted as real for some time and the person act as if nothing happened. Since the lost of a child is the worst thing ever, it's not surprising me a bit she went on that way, caring for him.

I really hope she'll get helped and taken care of. Sad sad story indeed.

This is so sad. As a mother of three I can say in my opinion that there is no greater love than the love a mom has for her kids. I really hope the mom is getting the help she needs. I pray the child passed peacefully.
