Scumbag of the Year Award Nominees- I nominate the Judge, the Kid, his parents, and the attorneys. Kid on the right stole beer, got drunk and killed the four people on the left. His parents' defense attorneys successfully argued that because he has been wealthy his whole life, he never learned that he couldn't always get his way. He got off only with probation. Turns out if you are born rich you have an illness called "Affluenza" that allows you to get away with murder, legally.
Found this image on Flickr through the CARF page, Children At Risk Foundation. It made an impact on me, maybe because of the power of love over death, of they way children struggle, just not quite sure. I live a life I don't deserve when I think of how some children live. This rat is dead, but the child loves it. Oh....the humanity of it.
Fe del Mundo, Harvard Medical School's first female student , was admitted because she was brilliant...and because they didn't realize she was a woman. Del Mundo founded the first pediatric hospital in the Philippines. She attended nine years before enrollment was opened to women.
