What have we become?

As a grandmother, my heart was broken when I read the article about ten year old Emani Moss. It seems that numerous pleas and signs that this precious little girl needed help were ignored.

We also have the case of 12-year-old Eric Forbis, who had been beaten by his father numerous times that eventually led to his death; again did no one pay attention to this child's plight?

All this causes me to take a hard look at our society. Family once was a safe haven for our children; the womb used to be a safe harbor; now we see violence in homes, schools, sex trafficking, bullying. The list could go on and on.

Have we become so calloused and hardened in our society that we have no conscience, no longer moved by abuse, killing now happening to the innocent ones - our children. When will we be willing to take a good hard look at what we have become?
