Protecting Our Children
I once heard on the news about a little 14 month old boy whose mother left him alone for days at a time. He was found when the apartment complex he was living in caught on fire.
He was rescued, but he was malnourished (his mom would stop by sometimes and leave him peanut butter and jelly sandwiches), and he had a bad diaper rash. His mom left the radio on to keep him company. Apparently it didn't work very well, because the dear little boy sucked the skin off his thumb.
How can this happen to our precious little children? I'm sure this kind of thing happens often. We need to raise awareness of this issue. Children need our help.

Stop Child Abuse Now Paul states the purpose of his website . . . “I want to let people, who were abused as children, know that they have choices other than to continue to be victims or perpetrators.”
Dave Pelzer The author of "A Child Called It." I just read this book recently, and it is excellent. I read it in two days. I told my mom about it and let her borrow it, and she read it in one day. That this poor little boy survived is amazing. And now he has done so much with his life! His story is amazing.
