The number of child abuse and neglect cases are on the rise. Not only that, there has been an increasing number of child deaths over the years and the numbers are steadily climbing. Anytime I read a story about child abuse and or neglect, I get severely depressed and upset. There is no way anyone can justify abusing, neglecting or murdering a child. Children are defenseless and helpless little beings who deserve to be loved, cared for and cherished.
Abusers of children are disgusting and heartless in my book. Not only that, they are betrayers of trust. You may be wondering, “How is that?” Well, let me tell you. Children are naturally born to trust those in their care because the natural instinct of all human beings is to love. When love is not given and it is replaced with acts of hate, over time the trust that precious child once had eventually dwindles away.
Children, in my opinion, are one of the greatest gifts in life and they should be treated as such. Children add luster and meaning to this thing we call life and it pains me to know that there are millions of children who are treated like unwanted trash. I wish I could save them all, but I know that is impossible. All I can do is pray for them and help spread the word that child violence is not okay. Those who mistreat children and fail to change their ways will get their due justice because I am a true believer that you reap what you sow.
Until next time…
