Child Abuse is Dangerous!

by Jordan W
(Moorestown, New Jersey, USA)

People need to know how dangerous child abuse really is. Almost every day some child has died because one of their family members has killed them. The society needs to know that this not going to go away, and should really begin to crackdown on this situation.


I'm doing this as my research project, and it has touched me deeply hearing about all of the numerous deaths that occur in our world today. I am only 17 years old, and I want to do something about this epidemic. This has to stop! The government isn't doing much to put this to an end. Parents around the world are watching this and probably wondering, what they are doing to help our children. If we don't bring this to a close, or lower the amount of deaths, the world is going to go into chaos!

We need to attack this now, before it gets out of hand! The world is our hands, and we can make a difference in what goes on. So, why don't we!

I share in your outrage...

Jordan, young people like you can make a difference, if not today, in the future. Young people like you can make choices about what is right and wrong about the way we treat our children. You and people of your generation are the future parents and governments and law-makers; and as such, will be charged with the responsibility of effecting change, of protecting our most valuable asset: our children. I live with the belief that your generation will be up to the task.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and feelings on this tragic epidemic that is worldwide deadly child abuse.

i agree with jordan, i too am 17 years old and it is soo sad to see child abuse happening in so many homes. ive done many assignments and school projects based on child abuse!! something needs to be done about it, but people don't wanna help other people, i'm sure if it was happening to one of their family members they would help, so why not help all the children its happening to??
