Bad Case of Child Abuse

by Chris
(Location Unknown)

Baby M* was only 2 years of age when her parents tortured her to death. They used cigarettes to burn her earlobes off, starved her, forced her to drink shampoo and pulled off her fingernails.


I think child abuse is awful. I believe children are our future. Treat them well and let them lead the way. Show them all the beauty they possess inside. Give them a sense of pride to make it easier. Let the laughter of children remind us how we used to be.

I decided long ago never to walk in anyone's shadow. If I fail, if I succeed, at least I'll have my dignity because the greatest love of all is happening to me. Learning to love yourself is the greatest love of all!!!

*NOTE FROM DARLENE: The name provided with this submission was changed, as I was unable to find the details of the case referred to above, and therefore was unable to confirm the identity of the child. Any similarities or connection made with an actual case using the name "Baby M" is purely coincidental.
