Take a stand, please?!

There is need for this law! Please stand up and help make a change!

As I sat in court, I heard yet another sad story of parents abusing their children. The Grandparents had the children for the last 15 months. The children had gone to visit them and started talking about what the Dad was doing to them. Come to find out it was also the Mother (mostly sexual stuff). They took the children (3 of them) and all was ok. The parents are on bond until the trial. While these babies were staying with the grandparents, the state  (DC  decided that supervised visits (with the biological parents) at the park would be appropriate. NOT! The grandparents placed the children in foster care because they could not handle the thought of what would happen to them on a visitation.

Who knows where this story goes? Where will these babies end up? How will they heal and learn to trust the world that surrounds them?

I hear these stories all the time. Maybe I hear them as God's little way of telling me to keep pushing for this law. I have let it go a couple of times because no one is interested. I am NOT going to stop until it is a law.

  Please look at this law and help. Please pass it along to friends. Thank you so much.

You know Children are very much like a pet animal like dogs, cats, etc. Now I'm not saying thr a human being is like a dog or cat but what I am say is when a child is very little and very young you must teach them as you would your favorate pet to live in this world always protect yourself from the things that can harm you! The world is full of people who know only to ruin, harm and distroy. We as parants and Gods people are to use the brain God gave us to make things better for all animals and must of all is to teach children how to live with both harmfull people and people of faith. God loves all his children and he'll be there for you if you are there for him! "Indian Boy"

Yes, I agree that something needs to be done. But the entire history of man clearly shows that no law has ever solved a problem or gotten rid of any incorrect attitudes or intentions in humans. Making another law is not the answer, nor is stricter enforcement or punishment. Neither of these has ever rid society of any kind of wrongdoing. Wrongdoing is just forced into hiding in these cases and you've alluded to just that here. There is an answer, but the cause has to be dealt with not the symptoms. Sexual abuse, as well as any other kind, is a symptom. The cause, and there is only one, is never looked at by society. If you wonder what I'm talking about, check out my blog on my Care2 site.

Walk in Peace

I am saddened by this case. it is awful, in arizona if any one touches a child in a sexual way, they are not nbondable!
