How long until society, our culture, our people, realize how precious and important the life of a child is. How valuable and important it is for a child to have the best, we as adults, have to offer them. For those of us who are parents, it is our obligation to ensure a safe, supportive, and direction oriented home for our children. Yet, many, many parents fail to see what it means to raise a child and instead seem to see the media and the rest of the culture as the standard of child rearing. Our culture's message about responsibility is a selfish and irresponsible one. For those of us who do not have children it is also our duty to help, protect, and have compassion for every child as the world is not their friend. As it is, few have the courage to help a child on the street or even remain vigilant when a child appears alone. Children suffer every day from those that intend to harm them but also from parents who refuse to love them as they should. To me this is terribly sad but at the same time, angers me. We must realize that a child's life and welfare is precious and that we are the ones that provide the experiences for children, good and bad! Well, that's all for now have a good one.
