The Evil that is the Media
Sometimes the timing of things makes me wonder how much hell we are going to be put through in our healing process. One of the big stories around our area right now is a set of parents on trial for beating their 2 year old daughter to death. They torturned her for a whole day... A WHOLE DAY. The mom was pregnant with her 2nd child when she was arrested. Every single time the news has promos or comes on, the story is on there. It's in the papers....it's everywhere. I know it will always be hard to see these kind of stories, or to see parents mistreating their kids around us, but why this trial, why right now? It breaks my heart even more and fuels the anger and unfairness I already feel. It is a shame that such a beautiful little girl was given to such a cruel and heartless woman. I hope her new child will be given to someone who will love and cherish him/her. As for the parents...there is no punishment fitting for what they did... I wish all of us who have lost a small child through no fault of our own could stand before them for days on end telling our stories, letting them know that we would die for what they had...not kill it.
