I missed this the first time around, and sorely upset that I did. I'm glad I didn't miss it this time though, even though the poem is gutwrenching and heartbreaking. You've written so well, about such an awful subject...and it just makes me so mad that things like this happen, and worse, that there are people who know something is going on and yet do nothing to stop it. Grrr...the thought makes me see red. God couldn't even come close to helping the pitiful fool that would ever try to do this to one of my kids, or one that I know.
May I never be too busy to help another's load,
Then I'll be drinking from the saucer 'cause my cup has overflowed.
