Obama Shuts Down Statue of Liberty, Crushes Dream of Seriously Ill Girl
Morgan Jones was born with glutaric acidemia Type 2, a rare, genetic disease that interferes with the body’s ability to break down proteins and fats to produce energy. Only 50 people in the entire world have the disease. She is also legally blind.
Morgan’s city trip was paid for by the Lexington Dream Factory, a charity that grants dreams to children ages 3-18 who have been diagnosed with critical or chronic illnesses.
Given the chance to go anywhere in the country, Morgan chose her favorite monument—the Status of Liberty. But since she is blind, unless she actually was able to touch, enter and go inside the Statue of Liberty, such a trip would be meaningless.
And then Barack Obama decided to be a vindictive jerk.
From the New York Post…
“She’s heartbroken. Her whole dream was to climb up the 354 steps to the crown,” said her mother, April Keelin.
Keelin, a music teacher, said that they can’t afford to return and that Morgan may not ever be well enough to come back.
“We don’t know if we’d ever get back to do this for her again,” the mother said.
