'Anonymous'

(Subject of image, writer of piece: Anonymous)

I hide my face in shame. We have failed our children. What's going on in this place? We hide our faces behind masks. We are afraid to show ourselves. We cannot correct other people's children lest we get 'shot up'. So we keep losing our precious little ones. They are growing up not knowing right from wrong.

Do you think we should remove our masks and be brave? I say we should try.

I read the news story of Hope's kidnapping ,rape and murder. My heart aches for this family, for that little precious girl whose life was stolen from her. Words cannot convey my sorrow.
Or anger.
