They are the stand-ins for our own children. The children who developed normally until they started to drift away after the vaccinations we were told would protect them. The vaccinations we were told were safe.
I just received a news flash that the Special Masters ruled against all three claimants. The decisions are not yet published, so I cannot comment fully on them. However, this is a terrible result. I am extremely disappointed in the decisions.
However, we will continue to make this fight for the sake of our children. I want to remind our readers that the fight for justice is often long, but as Dr. Martin Luther King said, the universe bends towards justice.
I also want to make a comparison to the veterans suffering from Gulf War Syndrome. Not less than three years ago it was reported that no such condition existed. Now, it is universally acknowledged that it was the things we did to them that caused their problems.
The fight continues.
