What is up with society today that we can discard our children? That we can beat them, hold them in the basement, starve them, bind them with tape, abduct them, abuse them?What is wrong that wasn’t wrong 20 years ago when I was growing up? I played from dusk until dawn. My mother saw me when it was time to get something to eat or drink and that was about it. She didn’t even question where I was and didn’t even know where I was most of the time.
I’m not saying that abductions and abuse of children didn’t happen back then, but it was certainly few and far between or at least reported that way.
I will tell you what happened.
1) – the Internet. The Internet is great for most of us and I have had great success researching things I would have never known before. But now, sick pedophiles can trade graphic images and videos of child porn.
Not only can they do this, but they can do this with seclusion, if you are computer savvy, and no one can ever trace where these videos came from.
I have read articles in which LE (Law Enforcement) cannot keep up with it. Number one they have issues with other countries and number two, there are just two few qualified LE that can crack this kind of thing.
Not too long ago, a father in Alpharetta, Georgia was arrested for having sex with his two daughters and broadcasting it over the Internet. The people tuned in could give him instructions on what to do with the girl next.
He didn’t get caught because he was on the Internet doing this LIVE, he got caught because his oldest daughter (12 I believe) saw her sister coming out of his room with her pants down (she was 7) and she told!
They also have their own support groups now. They can go in and talk to each other and feed off each other’s sick perversions, fantasies and even realities. They use to be alone, in a world that shunned them, now in their peer groups, they can be the kings.
2) – We are self absorbed. As a society today, we are self absorbed. We are working, (most of the time both parents) trying to keep up with the Jones, or perhaps just trying to make a better life. However, because of this, our children are suffering. They are being allowed to roam the neighborhood at 6 years old or taking care of themselves.
We are not giving them our knowledge. We are too tired, too busy, and they are raising themselves. I am not saying two parents cannot work in a household. Believe me, we are one of those households. But you have to let them shine, give them time. Show them that you care. Be involved with their lives.
As far as the Foster System; It is in desperate need of revamping. We need National Legislation and tax dollars. There needs to be extensive background checks, training, tests, and more tests. After all, the children that are going into this system are already “damaged”. They need someone that will care for them, nurture them and look after their best interest.
If NEITHER parent is employed, then that is a huge NO. That means that they want the subsidies provided for these children and that is it. If they have a criminal background or are taking any sort of mental health medications – again – A BIG RED FLAG.
These children are dependent on US! ON YOU AND ME!
It’s time to stop making this Nation a Nation of throwaway society. These children need us.
Tonight is in memory of Marcus Fiesel
May you be loved and hugged and kissed as much as any child could want in heaven. I am sorry we failed you.
