DO WE CARE THAT THE HISTORY OF CHILDREN IS HEINOUS?
THEY HAVE NO VOICE…………..
Why is it that adults are able to turn their backs on suffering children, or even worse deliberately abuse them?
I’ll never forget my bus rides to senior high school. The route took us by a Catholic church/convent. A cemetery occupied a part of the grounds. A friend, who rode the same bus to school and attended the church, repeatedly pointed out, “That cemetery is where they bury the nuns’ children.”
We often hear the saying: “The best way to hide the truth is in plain sight.” Really nice, sincere people attended the church, yet seemed unable or unwilling to see the cemetery and the evidence that so many children had died at an early age. If city officials had ever investigated, citizens seemed not to know. The rumor? seemed to simply occupy a portion of a city block with no interference from anyone.
Children are abused in a variety of ways … they can only cry out to a world that does not hear them.
The following article is just one example of how adults have turned their backs on the plight of children. I am aware of only one voice taking substantive legal action to stop the abuse of children on an international level. And that voice has been subjected to the cruel treatment inflicted on anyone who attempts to change the system. Adults routinely turn their backs on abused children and punish any adult who dares to take a stand for children’s rights.
Kevin Annett, representing the International Tribunal for Crimes of Church & State, is working to end the abuse of children. Does he have your support? http://itccs.org/
Do we adults care? Sex trafficking continues worldwide in 2014.
Ireland is just one example of mass graves for abused children. Kevin’s work began as a result of what his parishioners told him regarding the aboriginal children of Canada. Here’s a story of Irish children.

“Forget prayers. Only full disclosure by Ireland’s Catholic church can begin to atone for the children who died in its care.”
