If you think about it: there is the scandal of utter neglect of young persons with severe brain injury. There is no question about the fact. There is no question about the scandal.
But an existing scandal only becomes a public scandal when it touches and penetrates the public mind.
How can we make that happen?
We will cross the rubicon when families speak out and say it the way it is. Nothing more and nothing less. In public.
Only then will public outrage prevent professionals from pressing families to accept the ‘reality’ and ‘get on with it’. Only then will they stop putting families under pressure, driving them to tears.
It’s a public matter and we need to make it public. Res Publica Res Populi. Right?
