I feel that a too large majority of humans are not good people.
Humans that hurt other humans.
Humans that hurt children.
Humans that hurt animals.
There is a story on The Project (news shows in Australia) about some cleaners finding a one week old puppy in a skip.
Why would anyone do that??? Take it to a vet and say you found it. Lie if you have to, just dont dump it and leave it to die!!!
I dont have children. I think of babies as a blank canvas and as parents you can nurture that blank canvas in to happy adult. But I read your stories and have read so many books, blogs, news reports and seen so many things on TV, that have made me realise that child abuse in whatever form is more common than I was aware. Much too common.
I dont remember my childhood and am not sure why. But, it makes me realise that I am luckier than a lot of people.
I had two parents and I think I had a fairly happy upbringing. I was given some psychological issues later in life, but it could be or have been a lot worse.
I know there are a lot of good people and good things in this world.
It is a sad world. Im pretty sure I was dropped onto the wrong planet.
