I hate child killers. They make me sick to my stomach. Everytime I hear about one, I think about my kids. I can't stress enough, how much I absolutely hate people like that.

I know

But in cases like these, I'm all for the people taking the law into their own hands.

I didn't see anything. I didn't see anything either. Did you? Nope, not a thing.

I just wanted to hug her and take her home with me and show her some love. He told me this weekend she had told him that her mom and dad hit her and her sister bad. I started crying right there...I'm about to cry typing it. She's leaving to go live with her grandmother (which I really wonder if it's better since she hasn't been there all along). How very sad but I'm just too tender hearted for it. Maybe when I'm older and my son is older we can do that. I'd love to know I helped someone who might not have had a chance.
I'm crying reading your post. You sound like me. I'm very sensitive about these things. I start crying out in public a lot around situations like this.
