You knew it would take something ridiculous to bring me back to the blog, right? Well, here it is:
You’ve all heard about the poor woman who died on the floor of a psychiatric emergency room in New York. That is certainly a horrible thing that should never have been allowed to happen.
Today, though, her six kids advised the hospital, the city of New York and the city’s Health and Hospitals corporation of their intent to file a $25 million lawsuit. Why?
“What I want is justice,” Tecia Harrison said…
Wrong. What you, and your siblings want is money.
Your mom was literally sick enough to die and you weren’t there? There are only two options here:
- You knew she was sick but didn’t care enough to fly in from Jamaica to be there with her when she needed you. It could hardly be argued that this was sudden. This completely invalidates your claim.
- You didn’t know she was sick. Which is basically the same as #1, because if you cared about your mom, you would be involved in her life, at least to the point of being aware of a life-threatening illness!
Not only should you not get $25 million, you should be reprimanded for also doing nothing to prevent the death of your mother.
Of course, I don’t know the whole story, so there could be a good reason for her six kids not being there. If that’s true, I will apologize. But something tells me I won’t be apologizing for this anytime soon.
