    I don’t really understand why any parent would choose not to protect there children from these horrible diseases , But I guess that’s there choice , Bless the children they have no choices !!!!

    Every parent who thinks they do not want to vaccinate their children needs to read The Cruelest Miles, the true story of a diphtheria epidemic. No child should have to smother to death of a preventable disease.

    For all those who want to go back to the “good ol’ days of a simpler time”, you’d better not get sick and pray your kids stay well.
