Why on Earth would a mother put her baby in this type of Horrible withdrawl at birth? I guess they are drug addicts but they shouldn't not be using protection so they don't get pregnant? THIS needs to stop ASAP, these children are going to suffer their whole entire life and then afterwards also? I hope that they do something to stop this from happening over & OVER again. I have seen some women on their 3rd child addicted to Methadone. WHICH means they could have prevented the other's from being born, but they didn't take any precautions.Because they have no consequences afterwards. THEY don't even take care of these babies probably they leave them with family members or adoption or STATE CUSTODY, this needs to be STOPPED. IT should be FELONY CHILD ABUSE.

They did say it became neglected after a revolution. In the face of survival, these artifacts may not seem very important. Not knowing what state this town finds itself in, its people may think there are other things more important. That said, educating them to the possibilities of such a find would be worth the effort. As a potentially famous historical site, the town itself could benefit and improve itself and the livelihoods of its people. Protect it the best you can until understanding can be reached. All will benefit.

I was struck by the serenity of the Pharoah Rameses' II expression.
