Well children are our future and i think that if we really gave much thought to that, and I mean everyone, then ther wouldn't be the level of abuse to children even occurring. It is a sad sad situation, and those of us who know this for sure should step up and make our voices heard to step this crime that is taking plave against our children.

If I found out someone was abusing my grand children, I would deal with them first, them call the police, but I would do my damndest to make sure they never recovered from my justice.

It is funny that a society which will allow the abuse of children to happen which is worse than anything that has happened in Iraq will not allow access to contraceptives and abortion to the people who are most likely to repeat the offence of abuse..

I know I will get flack for this but as a child from abuse I wish I had been aborted many times instead of having the abuse that I went through.. I can only imagine some of the abuse that is happening now but I can see the results of this in the children I teach.. I love children but to see what they have to endure and what they also do to other children frightens me as the cycle will not stop it is only going to get worse as our abused population grows.. We teachers are Not equipped to handle the issues that have come up in the schools I teach in.. It will take a team a large team of Therapists, psychologists and others to allow these severely abused children to cope and none and I mean none of this is happening nor is it in place.. As much as I love children I say keep abortion and contraceptives free and legal to all....

I can't believe that our society allows abuse to happen. I know that all of the Department of Social Work does not allows work. I know that this might be contravesial but what about making people sterile if they have been convicted of chid abuse. At least this will prevent another child from being hurt. Remember that children are innoncent and can not defend themselves. God Bless

For all the little sarahs and sams...

When somebody dies, a cloud turns into
an angel, and flies up to tell God
to put another flower on a pillow.
A bird gives the message back to
the world, and sings a silent prayer
that makes the rain cry. People dis-
appear, but they never really go away.
The spirits up there put the sun to
bed, wake up grass, and spin the
earth in dizzy circles. Sometimes you
can see them dancing in a cloud during
the day-time, when they're supposed
to be sleeping. They paint the rain-
bows and also the sunsets and make
waves splash and tug at the tide.
They toss shooting stars and listen to
wishes. And when they sing wind-
songs, they whisper to us, don't
miss me too much. The view is nice
and I'm doing just fine.
