I just read an article about a horrific event in which a mother and father beat their two year old daughter to death. While this child was getting abused, she pleaded to her parents “I love you” to get them to stop.
They continued on until it was too late.
I hate this type of news, as it serves no purpose to any of us. It doesn’t make myself feel better (if that is the intention), it causes anger and sadness. What can I do about this? The parents are having their time in court, but I wish the media would cease to exist when reading such articles.
Yes, I realize I chose to click on that link. The more I read these stupid articles, the less I feel that humanity in general is capable of any good.
Better to be tied with a millstone around the neck under water than to harm the little ones.
I love my children. I know that there are some days I take them for granted. A typical prayer for them is that they be blessed, grow to love God, and that today I would put their needs before mine.
