|How could anyone hurt someone so innocent?|
Thursday, 10 October 2013
Sat here reading the news and all it is filled with is sadness. Last week, with all the stories about kids being killed by their own parents, I realised what an awful time we live in. Parents are supposed to look after their children, not hurt them! Today topped it off, I read the news that Baby P's "mother" would be released early after she "no longer poses a threat to the public". Of course she doesn't! The one person who she SHOULD have looked after is now dead, that poor little boy tortured and she stood by and allowed it to happen! That's the reason I use the term "mother" very lightly! She was in no way a mother - yes, she may have given birth to him, but she certainly didn't love, nurture or protect him, like any real mother would.
I'm sat here so angry. My fists are clenched, I can't stop thinking about that poor little baby, about all the poor little babies and children that have been through similar. Why do "parents" (and I use that term very lightly too!) do it to their own flesh and blood? I just don't get it.
At that point, I remember about the baby in my arms. My baby, snoring, peaceful while he sleeps. That thought comes back to me, "How could they do it?!". Baby B is perfect! Yes, he has his moments, but that doesn't make me angry. What makes me angry is the pain and suffering that kids have to go through from the people that are SUPPOSED to look after them, make them safe, love them no matter what. It's like a contract - as soon as they are born, you should be ready to sign your heart away. Promise them the world.
But I'm not liking this world at the moment. What has happened? Rewind back 20 years ago and it was safe to play out in the street. We could go anywhere and not worry about being snatched, attacked or worse. Our parents knew once they called for us, we'd be back inside. But now, I don't even like the girls walking down the shop on their own - and that's only a five minute walk away!
