15 Day Challenge, Day 9

I'm actually going to take this down a different path.
For the parent's out there that read this, I think you should be able to relate to my fascination.And when I say fascination I'm referring to #3 (taken from www.dictionary.com)
Fascinate ([fas-uh-nayt]
1.
to attract and holdattentively by a unique power, personal charm, unusual nature, or some other special quality; enthrall: a vivacity that fascinated the audience.
2.to arouse the interest or of; allure.
3.to transfix or deprive of the power ofresistance, as through terror: The sight of the snake fascinated therabbit.
Don't click on the links below if you don't want to become either violently ill or ridiculously enraged.
Parent's who will kill their babies.
I think the most recent and definitely well-publicized of what I'm referring to is Casey Anthony, if you're wondering where I'm going with this. I'm not really planning on discussing whether or not I think she purposefully killed her precious daughter, Kaylee, or if it was an accidental drowning that was covered up. I just needed you to understand the situations I'm referring to and not to abortion, which I know for some of you that you feel very strongly that the people who take part in this are indeed murderers.
Another blog, another day.
I think why I find these situations so fascinating/terrifying is because they seem so unrealistic to me. I absolutely can not imagine purposefully, or accidentally, hurting my daughter in any way or form that would or could result in her death.
I kinda physically just gagged when typing that.
I didn't understand these stories, these lives, prior to my daughter but now being a mom, it's like it's been amped up by a million. I dread watching the news, I've grown eyes in the back of my head, ears all over the place, and intuition in my buttcrack fearing that something, or someone, will hurt my Lillie.
I absolutely do not understand their thought process.
I know there's a lot of great out there, but when the bad gets so much attention it's hard not to focus on it and just be amazed at what people are capable of doing.

"Lindsay is a model daughter and as good as they get." Are you kidding me? She killed her babies so you wouldn't find out, dad! Oh my gosh, so much mental illness going on in that family...

I know right! It's just amazing to me how the brain can rationalize/justify just about anything.

I really think in another life I would have become a scientist who studied the brain.
