Child Abuse of Zahra Baker

by Name Undisclosed

I'm not Zahra, but I heard about her in the news and was devastated by it. She was 10 years old when she died. She had beaten cancer twice in her short life, which resulted in her becoming blind in one eye and getting a prosthetic leg. But she didn't die from cancer, she died from being brutally beaten to death by her parents. I feel bad about her story, but I'm happy to say that her parents are in jail.

I too am very happy her parents are in jail. When it comes to child abuse, each of us must do our part. The devastation you feel about Zahra's death can make a difference in the lives of other children, if you choose to make a difference. I believe you WILL choose to make a difference; posting here is a start. Thank you for sharing with my visitors and me.

The more I read court cases where parents are imprisoned because of the awful, horrific acts the have done on their children I become very tense and angry imagineing the innocent child has been brutalized by their animalistic minded parents: who should have loved and cherished them: Yes: your higlighting Zahra Baker's death through being beaten to death: How could they? their beautiful, brave, innocent child beating cancer then beaten to death: Prison throw away the key: She is an Angel in Heaven for me, a child of God and the Universe: precious in God's eyes: His creation: You have touched the hearts of all by telling us your feelings: Keep making the difference by being brave, courageous in speaking out for the innocent children who suffer abuse: Be their voice: Thank You
