Say something about child abuse.
When I was in high school my little sister was being bratting one day so I smacked her up the side of her head. I didn't hit her very hard but I had just gotten my class ring and so it really hurt her. She cried, a lot! I felt really really bad, I apologized to her and I felt so bad. I have never forgotten that. I resolved never to inflict that kind of pain on someone smaller and younger than me.
Because of that, I can not understand someone who abuses and inflicts pain on a child. It tells me that they have no conscience at all! Although children are not my favorite creatures on the earth; they can be bratty, disease ridden, snot nosed, demanding, obnoxious and smelly little creatures, but they are innocent and can not defend themselves against an adult.
It boggles my mind to think that someone could abuse children repeatedly and be able to live with themselves. I have no sympathy for them at all. Whether it be beatings, sexual abuse or mental abuse it it wrong!
