sadness and anger

I am devastated. The news report about a 5-year-old little girl who is in a Barcelona hospital in critical conditions, after being battered (not for the first time) by her mom's boyfriend...How can someone be so inhuman and do any harm to an innocent child? How can a mother look away when she knows this is happening to her very own (or any) kid, under her own roof and before her eyes?

  2. This is horrible. It makes me cry any time I hear a story like this. I hope that monster gets all the law has to throw at him - and even that is not enough. That poor child.

  3. Horrendous! It's hard to understand how a woman would stay with a man who would do this...I know they say it is a 'sickness' of sorts, but My Lord..It's her child!!!!!
    This Is Criminal...I hope he gets the book thrown at him, too!

  4. It is really sad when you hear such news. It makes you angry and want to get back on the person who did this. A woman who can allow this to happen to her own child is really crazy and out of this world. She should be buried alive.

  5. Just awful. Ugh. What is this world coming to? Did you hear that abortions are now illegal in South Dakota???

    GRR. At least personally today is better than yesterday.

    Thanks for your kind words.

  6. I have asked myself that before too, Mar, and it probably will not be the last time, unfortunately. She should be jailed along with him.

  8. That's terrible! There have been many, many cases of child abuse and neglect in Germany lately and reading about it is making me ill. I'll never understand it.

  9. I am adding my thoughts of not knowing how anyone could do this to the list. I do know that women who are battered themselves find it nearly impossible to stand up for themselves or their children. This is not to excuse anyone. I hope he gets all he deserves and that justice prevails. There is a mean side to me that wishes he gets the biggest bully in the world as a cellmate.

  10. I see too much of this everyday but it never ceases to anger me. One common thread I see is women's lack of self-esteem, which leads them all too often to choose the men in their lives over their children.

    Like Frog Legs said, I hope to never understand it. Then again, maybe if I did, I could help to fix it.
