    OK Walker, your statement is filled with inaccuracies, which is why this discussion is so important. The only place that vaccines are "controversial" is on mommy blogs and comment sections. Vaccines are not controversial in the scientific community, and that includes the scientific community that is no way, financially or otherwise, connected to "Big Pharma."

    Vaccinations have improved so much that they actually overwhelm the immune system much less than they did 30 years ago. In fact, there is no scientific evidence that suggests they overwhelm the immune system at all. The currently recommended schedule has been found to be the safest and most effective. The only exceptions are where individuals are concerned. Rarely, a person will have a severe reaction to an ingredient in a vaccination, but again, these severe reactions are rare.

    This tragedy is certainly devastating for the parents and family. But more needs to be known. How weakened was this baby’s immune system by previous vaccinations? Much of the latest science definitively proves that health and immunity to disease starts in the navel (or gut) (Proverbs 3:8, D&C89, etc) not in the needle. The DN should be aware of the huge controversy about childhood and pre-mission vaccinations. At 4 months, if Violet received the latest recommended schedule of vaccines, she likely had already received some 12 childhood vaccinations, far more than used to be the case. Each one of these injected multiple poisonous substances and genetic material into Violet's body, completely overwhelming her tender immune system. So with her immune system severely weakened, her body was apparently susceptible to the H1N1 virus. It would be interesting to know all of the facts of this tragic story...Those who are aware of the Vax problem likely draw the opposite conclusion from your headline. Its time to refuse all childhood vaccinations.

    My heartfelt sympathies to the Villalobos family. Thank you for sharing your story in order to help others. Violet will have a warm and gentle place in my memory because of how you have honored her life.

    This is so incredibly sad. My prayers go out to her family. I have a little girl her age, I can't imagine what it's like. I'm glad the parents are trying to be constructive and urging people to get vaccinated. This is why it is so incredibly important to get the flu vaccine, it's not just your life you risk. Peoples' decision not to get vaccinated puts the lives of others- like the sweet little baby in this story- in danger.

    I can't imagine the shock, the grief and heartache this couple went through. I've shed many tears with this story and am going to call my friend who has a 7 month and a 3 year old to make sure they have had their flu shots. The little one maybe still too young. I pray the Lord will bless them with strength to be able to get through this tragedy. That little cutie sure is in a better place than we are but that doesn't take away the heartache.

    My heart goes out to these parents. Loosing a child so young is heartbreaking, we have experienced this with our first Granddaughter who left us at 4 and 1/2 months of SIDS. They will be cared for by a loving Heavenly Father, and I know that he will bless you family also. My prayers are with you and your family.
