The parents have raised $1.8 million to bring him to the United States, but British courts refuse to allow the move and have ordered him taken off life support. http://cvote.it/2sJFzd0

CHARLIE GARD // And yet, British doctors won’t let Charlie Gard travel to Rome to the Pope’s hospital for care. This is just bizarre, and sickening. (Remember this case when people push for government-run single payer health care. http://cvote.it/2sKbcDt

PATRIOTISM // “Millennials don’t consider themselves patriotic. According to Pew Research, only about half of Millennials say the phrase “a patriotic person” describes them very well—with 35% saying this is a “perfect” description. Just compare that to 64% of Gen Xers, 75% of Boomers and 81% of Silents who say this describes them very well,” writes Gabrielle Bosche, in “Why Millennials Aren’t Patriotic.” http://cvote.it/2sKsr7u
