To the editor,

It is 2012 and still there are people who are still mean those who have mental disabilities. They say thinks like "those people" should live elsewhere, or treat them different than any other patient at the emergency room. They talk to them like you would talk to a child, or stand making circle's with their hands.

It's not easy being  mentally ill, its a constant struggle every single day. Please stop making fun of people, as it could happen to you. I have more respect for a person who admits they have a problem and asks for help, then I do for a person who makes a joke about people different from them. The one making fun of them is truly a lot sicker than they are: they'll get better, but the mean people never will. Shame on you!
