someone sent this to me in an e-mail! It is so very sad but I know thigs like this happen all over the world! I just felt the need to share maybe we can make a difference and help to end the heartwrenching epidemic of Child Abuse! This is a crime that needs to be addressed and people needto stop hurting innocent children! I did a report on Child abuse for college and the stats scared me and very shocking!! ohmy.gif :'( :'(

Here is the story of Sarah who was three......

"Sarah"

My name is Sarah

 I am but three,
 
 My eyes are swollen
 
 I cannot see,
 
 I must be stupid
 
 I must be bad,

 What else could have made
 
 My daddy so mad?
 >>
 >>I wish I were better
 >>
 >>I wish I weren't ugly,
 >>
 >>Then maybe my mommy
 >>
 >>Would still want to hug me.
 >>
 >>I can't speak at all
 >>
 >>I can't do a wrong
 >>
 >>Or else I'm locked up
 >>
 >>All the day long.
 >>
 >>When I awake I'm all alone
 >>
 >>The house is dark
 >>
 >>My folks aren't home
 >>
 >>When my mommy does come
 >>
>>I'll try and be nice,
 >>
 >>So maybe I'll get just
 >>
 >>One whipping tonight.
 >>
 >>Don't make a sound!
 >>
 >>I just heard a car
 >>
 >>My daddy is back
 >>
 >>From Charlie's Bar.
 >>
 >>I hear him curse
>>
 >>My name he calls
 >>
 >>I press myself
 >>
 >>Against the wall
 >>
 >>I try and hide
 >>
 >>From his evil eyes
 >>
 >>I'm so afraid now
 >>
>>I'm starting to cry
 >>
 >>He finds me weeping
 >>
 >>He shouts ugly words,
 >>
 >>He says its my fault
 >>
 >>That he suffers at work.
 >>
 >>He slaps me and hits me
>>
 >>And yells at me more,
 >>
 >>I finally get free
 >>
 >>And I run for the door.
 >>
 >>He's already locked it
 >>
 >>And I start to bawl,
 >>
 >>He takes me and throws me
 >>
 >>Against the hard wall.
 >>
 >>I fall to the floor
 >>
 >>With my bones nearly broken,
 >>
 >>And my daddy continues
 >>
 >>With more bad words spoken.
 >>
 >>"I'm sorry!", I scream
 >>
 >>But its now much too late
 >>
 >>His face has been twisted
 >>
 >>Into unimaginable hate
 >>
 >>The hurt and the pain
 >>
 >>Again and again
 >>
 >>Oh please God, have mercy!
 >>
 >>Oh please let it end!
 >>
>>And he finally stops
 >>
 >>And heads for the door,
 >>
 >>While I lay there motionless
 >>
 >>Sprawled on the floor
 
 My name is Sarah
 And I am but three,
 Tonight my daddy
 Murdered me.

 There are thousands of kids out there just like
Sarah. And you can help.
  If someone spoke out Sarah may have been alive today instead of a senseless statistic..... :'(

Chrissy,

Thank you for posting this. Sometimes we think it is not our problem, but child abuse is societies problem. Either these kids grow up to be abusers, or on drugs, or maybe they abuse themselves in numbers of ways. In any event, if one persion speaks up, maybe we can help save one child.

As an adult survivor of abuse, I wonder how all the family members,teachers, doctors and neighbors lived without saying something, without helping me and my siblings when we were kids. We had apparent signs of abuse and neglect, but I guess everyone turned their backs on us. It really makes me sad to think of this...

Love,
Dara
