What's This World Coming To?

OMG, Is it just me or is everyone else as upset over all the news about these poor children that are being abused and or even killed by their own parents. It’s just insane.

A brother and sister ages 3 and 4 year old that were killed by their father in Mississippi and buried alongside the road.

The three little brother ages 5, 7 and 9 years old are missing in Michigan.

What about the little 10 year old girl from North Carolina that survived cancer only to be killed and cut into pieces by her stepmother and or father.

Everyday there is a new story in the news regarding children that are abused or killed by their own family members.

What on earth is wrong with these people? I’m truly disturbed by all the violence towards children. There should be a special place for these people that abuse, molest and kill children.

What could a child possibly do that would warrant such drastic measures. Were these monsters never children themselves? What could possibly be going on in their lives that would make them snap and do such terrible things?

There are thousands of caring and loving people in this world that would gladly open their hearts and their homes to these children whose parents evidently don’t care to love and protect.

It is a long drawn out ordeal to adopt a child. It takes money, attorneys and patients. You have to be interviewed and your home inspected, your income checked out and your background investigated. It’s almost as difficult to adopt a pet. Yet, anyone can have a child with no questions asked. There are no interviews, no income requirements and no background checks. Some of these people wouldn’t even make decent pet owners.

I have come to believe that some people think their children are like property and they can treat them anyway that want.

If these people find their children difficult to handle or realize they’re just not cut out for the parenting job, why don’t they find someone who is?

I am so sorry about the rant, it’s just upsetting how often we are hearing this sort of thing on the news recently.
