Disturbing...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

We all have a moral and ethical obligation to speak out when we know or suspect child abuse. All too often, people refuse to act, and thus, child abuse is allowed to continue, in the millions worldwide.

You speak of history happening Feb 14 1994, and then of an incident with a praying child in June 1993...your cryptic musing sounds dangerously close to depression. Whether or not any of what you've written relates directly to you, I urge you to seek out some form of counselling.

And just for the record, you are NOT "Nobody." You are a precious human being with a heart and a soul and a purpose. Don't ever lose sight of that.
