My heart bleeds for the father, 8 year old daughter and the mum who killed her 3 young children last week in south west London.
The young children suffered from a degenerative disease that was slowly killing them as they grew older. For the parents to watch as their little ones grow more and more helpless would be unbearable. In some ways I can understand what she did and why. But oh so sad for the whole family. One of the worst aspects must be the vicarious interest of the press. The family must be devastated by the recent events.
