They Are Our Kids Too
When news broke of the child abuse, no – the torture, endured by 13 children at the hands of their parents, we as a nation were stunned and heartbroken. We all asked, How does something like this happen? How can parents abuse and torture their own or any child for that matter? How did no one else know? Additionally, I wonder How many tears did these kids shed over the years? How many times were they cold, hurting and hungry? How could we, as a society, including those who knew the family, go so long letting these kids down? This story, their horrible story, cannot just be another heartstring-pulling headline today and yesterday’s news tomorrow. What can we do?
