Protect children everyday of the year

2019-06-18 06:00

I think it is funny how around this time of year there are so many people popping up to tell us about child protection.

Why are we only hearing about this one week out of 52?

It is disturbing that we even need this week in the first place. Children should be born and live care-free, the way they came into the world.

We are living in sad times when you cannot even trust your own family with your children, when women and children are being raped by family and people they trust.

I cannot imagine needing to live like that as an adult, but the fact that people do this to innocent children is shocking and pathetic.

I am sorry, but that makes you a sorry excuse for a human.

I am not oblivious to the circumstances others live through.

I understand that not everyone was as fortunate as me growing up.

I do want to say though, that not everyone is the same and not everyone should be brushed with the same strokes.

I read a story on social media about a woman who had left her three daughters with her husband and his friends.

When she arrived home, her daughters had been abused. She then had the men arrested and posted a long story about how not to trust your husbands with your daughters.

I would like to point out that this is not fair, while it does and can happen, I trust my husband with my children completely. Bad men who do bad things give all men a bad wrap and this cannot be the case.

There are still good men who are the protectors of their families and they cannot be grouped the same.

Be careful, but do not punish them for the deeds of others.
