Fatal Distraction (article link) is a Pulitzer winning feature by Gene Weingarten that was published in The Washington Post last year. It won the 2010 Pulitzer for feature writing yesterday. The article is a brilliantly written piece about parents who forget their infants and sleeping toddlers in cars during the hot spring and summer months leading to fatal consequences. I sobbed through five pages of the most fascinating, disturbing and heartbreaking pieces of human-interest journalism I've ever read. I know a lot of people out there will say "what kind of parent forgets a child in a car?" I thought the same before I started reading. But by the end I didn't know who I felt worse for, the children who died or the parents who will never escape their own personal hell. I encourage every parent and those who intend to be parents to find the time to read this article. Incredibly moving!
