The news just reported that a 3 year old boy was found beaten to death at his home in Brooklyn. He was living with his godmother and her boyfriend after his mother surrendered him months ago to keep feeding her crack addiction. They questioned neighbors who said they heard the boy screaming from time to time, but didn't think anything was "unusual." Brainless, stupid people! Is it so "usual" to hear a little boy screaming for his life?
My God. What is it going to take for human beings to stop taking their anger out on small, defenseless children? We're supposed to be adults who know better! I am so sick of hearing these horrific stories on the news, day after day. Literally sick to my stomach. They've charged the godmother and her boyfriend with murder. I can only hope and pray that they wind up in a small, suffocating cell with a guy named Butch who doesn't prey too kindly on child murderers.
Come on people. If you suspect child abuse, you must report it. These defenseless children need us to give them a voice. This shouldn't of happened. None of these cases should ever have to happen. Open your eyes and ears, it's more common than you think. Only the ugliest of stories make the headlines, but it happens every. single. day. Pay attention and watch for the signs, maybe you can save a child from enduring the hell that little boy went through.
