Some sweet political hilarity found on Reddit…
*Check the comments on Reddit for the crisps version*
I basically killed my father. or at least intentionally allowed him to die.
He was an abusive father all my life, and when I was 19, he had a heart attack. I calmly took the phone away from him before he could dial 911, put the recliner he was sitting in up so he would be laying back and his weight would make it harder to breathe, took one last look right at him, then left the room.
About an hour or so later I found him sitting there staring forward with foam in his mouth, not breathing.
I should clarify that I had been working at a hospital for at least 4 years at that point (volunteer work) and I was first aid certified. I knew exactly what was happening, and what I was doing.

‘This is the photo of my daughter and her best friend who has been diagnosd with leukemia. Can you photoshop the background to something pretty or fun.’
And there’s more where that came from:
Yesterday, bbllbay updated:
Folks, I posted this early in the morning and I can not find the words to explain how I feel about all your comments. My wife has been crying for the last hour. I am very grateful for all your beautiful comments and creations. As a thank you to all of you I just donated a little amount to the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
