The world has gone mad.
In recent times we have seen and heard so many atrocities being committed around the world. We sigh, we worry, we cower, we fight, we mediate, we instigate, we loot, we murder,we lie, we hurt each other, we scream, we hurt, we draw blood, we do us.
In all these, we forgot the children.
We forgot the children.
They watch us.
They admire us.
They aim to be like us.
They copy us.
In every way they can.
They know no better than what we have shown them.
They are becoming what we have become.
They watch, they learn, they act.
We forgot the children in all our mess.
A group of Yemeni children tried to act out what they saw ISIS do to the Jordanian pilot. They took a boy (their friend) and locked him in a cage, they doused him with petrol and lit him up. Just like ISIS did and they watched. Thankfully, his cries drew adults to the scene and he was rescued before it was too late.
Life has gotten as scattered as this post is unarranged. Here and there and thus we have forgotten the children.
What have we become??????????
