wept hard enough that my face turned red when I watched that viral video of Quaden Bayles, an Indigenous Australian boy with achondroplasia — a genetic disorder resulting in dwarfism — sobbing in a car about wanting his life to end. You can watch the video on YouTube. Be warned that it may be triggering for those with suicidal thoughts or ideation.
In the video, Quaden can be seen with his head hanging low against his plaid blue shirt and his forehead pressed against the door frame of the car as he cries “I want someone to kill me” and “I just want to die right now.” His hair sticks to his forehead, his eyes look swollen. At one point, he stretches his finger out towards his mother and sobs “Even you…you don’t even do anything.”
