this reminded me of my 13 hour flight from Taiwan earlier this summer. this child in front of me was not just crying but screaming at the top of his lungs for parts of the flight. the whole crew including the pilots at one point attempted to help the parents. i felt so bad for them. all i could do was put on my mp3 and turned the volume full blast. i love children as much as anyone but parts of those 13 hours i had very ugly thoughts.
