It is with a sombre heart that I sit here urging myself to write, raise my opinion in the ever growing sea of anger against the growing number of child murders.
Children are being molested, abused and killed at a staggering rate, children who are defenceless and fragile, children who are vulnerable because they trust easily and do not know the evils of the world that they live in. Every week now the news screams about mothers poisoning their children or fathers doing the most unspeakable acts to their children, family members, friends and strangers taking advantage of children.
They are being betrayed by the very people in the world who are supposed to take care of them. Imagine a two year old girl or boy being lured by someone that they trust, by someone who they feel safe with, someone whom they know and then they are stripped of their innocence, raped, beaten and brutally killed. A child know's only what they see, what they are taught and what they experience.
Many children survive these horrific ordeals and have to deal with it. Some wither away, commit suicide or become juvenile delinquents who act out rebelliously. We are destroying the future that they have because we are killing them, physically and emotionally.
I fear a society where one's child is not safe in his own neighbourhood or house, around family or friends. What will we do with them, where will we hide them away from the sick immoral and inhuman world. It's time to act against this disgusting behavior that is trying to become apart of our everyday life, it time to say No.
No to the murder, the rape, the abuse of little children, they do not deserve such vile treatment. The only thing for such evil to persist is for good people to do nothing.
