The Vaccine Injured are Americans… and So are Their Parents


The desk of a beautiful 20 year old with autism, vaccine injured. That Grover doll went to each pediatric appointment. We DID the right thing. Didn’t we?

My name is Kimberly Stagliano.  I am the daughter of a World War II veteran. I am a college graduate. I pay my taxes. I vote in every election. I recite the Pledge of Allegiance including “One Nation Under God,” and sing the Star Bangled Banner with my hand over my heart at every sporting event (albeit badly).

I am the mother of a vaccine injured daughter, now 20 years old.

Sometimes—sometimes—things you trust, things that are part of the fabric of America—they betray you in the cruelest fashion. They harm. They wound.

They change lives.

And then lies follow. Covers ups.

IT CAN NOT BE TRUE. The victims are the criminals.

It’s an age old “defense.” It’s how civil wars start and brothers kills brothers. Neighbors turn in neighbors. Someone benefits from that fear. Rarely the brother, or the neighbor.

Dr. Seuss wrote “The Sneetches”—remind me, which were best, those with stars upon thars or not?

My daughter’s first word was “Ober,” her approximation of “Grover,” the furry blue monster from her beloved Sesame Street. She was ten months old. She was diagnosed with autism at 4.

My daughter is an American. She will never vote. She will never pay taxes. She will cost the nation millions of dollars over the course of her lifetime. She did not graduate from high school.

I am her mother. I am the guardian—morally and legally—of her health.

She will never have another vaccination and risk slipping further into disability or death.

I made a short video of her watching her favorite song, “Sing,” from Sesame Street. This particular version is from the anniversary special titled, Sesame Street, Twenty Years and Counting.

Just like my daughter, twenty years old and still counting 1… 2… 3.

You’ll see a familiar person introducing the song, the show host.

Take it away Bill Cosby—”America’s Dad!”

Oh wait a minute…  Bill Cos…..

    New parents, and often people much older, have no idea about what goes on behind the scenes to determine the type of health care that their children receive (including the vaccines), and the safety (or lack thereof) of the foods that they will feed their children and of the electronics that their kids will be exposed to. They just trust that the appropriate due diligence has been done.

    The truth of the matter is that governments have failed massively in all of these realms. These are systemic problems that cannot be readily “reformed”. We need to stop relying on corrupt governments to provide these services and look instead to private firms to do the proper work needed to provide certifications that our foods, medicines, and electronics are safe.

    Your story is sad but with love shinning! The video is very touching and sharing it is appreciated. Thank you for the connection between your patriotism and the trust that has been damaged from vaccinations. I too received damage that was probably the result of a flu shot but the healthcare industry would not fight for me or fight with the government lawyers. Instead, they took the easy road and just marked my cause as “undetermined”! So as a man who is in the late 60’s and now dependent upon a walker or wheelchair, I can no longer work and have many issues that started at the same time with a diagnosis of Transverse Myelitis. Prayers for your family as you continue to love and cope.

    The only connection with patriotism that I have is that I have none. How can you? This country has failed the American people on so many levels. None being larger than government and Big Pharm/Healthcare. When I see an American flag hanging, all I think of is failure and blind patriotism. People need to open their eyes and look around. Greed and corruption are what make of the fabric of this country. The original virtues of this country are lost… Namely liberty and the ability to make a choice for how I want to live my life. I can’t go anywhere without seeing something alarming. Water supply is contaminated (overuse of pesticides) and the municipality decides to use cloramine and fluoride because it is “good for the public”. Spraying of mosquitoes with pesticides, Gmo’s everywhere, prescription drugs out of control, police brutality, carnival politics, overpriced education…. Could go on and on. It’s a joke and I am sick of it. If people are so convinced vaccines are full proof, then you should care less if I or my kids are unvaccinated. Go live your pathetic life consuming everything the Stars and Stripes has to offer and let me lead mine.

    I have posted this to my site.
    We have a government that is bought and paid for by banks, and corporations. We now live in a fascist state.
    Autism is a huge problem, but what is coming down the road will be even larger.
    I’m going off on a bit of a tangent here, but I was an analyst for years and very good at seeing things others did not. A friend reminded me sometime back that I was writing about what is taking place today years before anyone even broached the subject.
    Your government, that is to say the people you vote for, have no qualms about murder or the destruction of lives through instruments such as vaccines. In order to keep building on their power, they must sometimes murder in order to attain a goal.
    The Sandy Hook shooting was classified under NATIONAL SECURITY, and no one is allowed to see the reports of the required tasks that are supposed to be taken in a situation such as Sandy Hook. There are requirements in law that should be undertaken, and those documents are supposed to be readily available to the public. Documents that have nothing at all to do with those who were murdered, but rather procedures. We are now forbidden from seeing them, and the lies proliferate around the whole horrid event.
    I have been screaming for years now that the reason for the fight against gun ownership was to give the government a monopoly of power, and to allow it/them to enforce anything they want without fear of martial retribution from the people.
    Think about what you know of vaccines and all the coverup. We have a nation falling apart and there are still those who cry for more destruction.

    I have been reading commentary after well written articles concerning “choice” in the health care of our children, and adults. As a scientist the “one size fits all” approach to anything is archaic and we must continue to question that approach which is the CDC m.o. My wife, as a lab scientist, was required to accept the flu shot for continued employment so, after 3 bouts of Shingles and one of severe abdominal distress, she refused to be vaccinated with a vaccine that is not tested, and proven year after year to be largely ineffective. The side effects are rather horrendous. Fortunately she did not suffer Transverse Myelitus or many of the other severe auto immune side effects; the pharmaceutical industry continues to pull in their billions without any accountability thanks to legislation. It is time for an organized voice, one that threatens legislators for their jobs,
    to overturn this injustice. I’m not a marketer, but this can and should be organized.
