Bag Baby (you have to see this video)

Absolutely no connection to terrorism at all but I have never seen anything like this video before. Of course I have heard stories of such things happening but to see something so moving and at the same time shocking that ultimately turns out not to have some tragic ending is quite something.

Watch this video from the BBC (windows media player required) picked up from Brazilian television.

Unbelievable

Wow. I have such mixed feelings. Part of me is relieved she was found unharmed, another part is furious that someone would take such a measure and another part of me is puzzled as to why someone would choose such a measure.

Totally amazing. I hope they find the mother or father that did this and send them away for life.

Truly amazing and awful at the same time.
I hope they find the folk responsible and they are punished severely

its a treagedy on so many levels. i suspect the child was not born into a happy family. it would be easy to hate the mother of the child that did this, but she must have been depressed, desperate and totally incapable of looking after the child.
its not an excuse but desperate people in desperate situations are do desperate things.

I was moved by the video. I suppose I should have felt outrage at the parents, but I didn't. Don't know why, actually, and I'm frankly surprised at myself.
