Mother in Florida kills her three young sons and herself
My initial thought when reading the headline of this story was how tired I am of seeing these stories, over and over. I felt this welling of frustration in my stomach. Once again, more babies lives are destroyed, yet again, another mom takes her life ... because we still have so much work to do to spread awareness of postpartum depression and its horrible life-threatening sister disorder, postpartum psychosis. And authorities in Floral City, Florida, where this latest incident took place, are all scratching their heads, wondering why this young mother killed her babies and then herself. Makes me want to scream.
