y worst nightmare took place yesterday. Worse than events that have taken place and that I have survived in my short 28 years of living. Worse than my wildest of dreams could conjure.
My son was taken from me.
My son was taken from me by the TSA agents at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson airport yesterday.
He was taken away from me and OUT OF MY SIGHT because his pacifier clip went off when I carried him through the metal detector.
According to the Transportation Security Administration website, “We will not ask you to do anything that will separate you from your child or children.”
You took my son. MY SON.
As a parent, this account is nothing short of horrifying.
Edit: I guess I got caught up in all the anti-TSA rhetoric going around. The TSA posted the actual CCTV footage of this incident, which paints a very different picture of what happened. That said, everyone needs to be vigilant to ensure that something like what this woman described doesn’t happen. Ever.
