Posts Tagged ‘Huffington Post’

So I was all set this morning to write about why I think I’ve been getting sick this winter, but instead this proud husband would like to share some pretty cool news about his pretty awesome wife.

This guy is now married to an official, genuine, actual Huffington Post Blogger!

After writing one of her best political pieces recently, Jess decided she would submit her post to Huff Po.  She had high hopes they would print it, but felt that it was probably a long shot.  Last night she got the news that her piece was live!

So proud of you, babe!

I often talk about the importance of running.  How it is a wonder drug, a stress reliever, a life saver.  Running is, aside from my family, a prime focus of my life.  But sometimes, things happen that make you realize just how trivial something like a quest to qualify for Boston can be.

Recently a friend of my wife’s went through (is going through) the nightmare that every parent fears.  Her 9-year-old, pre-verbal, autistic daughter was repeatedly abused physically by her bus driver.  This 24 year-old woman would smile at my wife’s friend while driving away saying, “Bye Mom”, simultaneously twisting her daughter’s fingers to the point of spraining them.

The wife does a much better job articulating what we can do here:


and her friend’s story is on Huff Po here:


We all don’t agree on the causes of autism, but I do think that we can all agree that there is no excuse for abusing children.  Please take the time to read the wife’s post, but more importantly, take a moment to read Kim’s post and leave a comment.  The more comments her post receives, the more likely it will reach the front page of the Huffington Post.

As the wife said:

If enough of us read it (and comment on it!), we’ll get that damned thing to the front page. In so doing, we’ll shine a light on the desperate need to safeguard these vulnerable kids. We’ll make a public statement that we WILL NOT ABIDE by the abuse of our precious babies – whether our babies are two or forty-two. We will declare this atrocity quite simply INTOLERABLE.

Whether it’s my post, the wife’s post, or Kim’s post, please pass this along.  Please help speak for those who can’t.
