    Mine Was Stolen.

    Things happened to me that ruined my childhood and eventually ruined me. I don't want to see people go through what I have gone through. I realize that I can't make the world perfect, but I'm going to make a diffrence and, hopefully, save lives. It's loud and here I go.

    There Was None...

    When I was a child, there was no happiness. I don't hardly remember a day when I was happy the whole day without feeling some sort of depression. No child deserves that.

    Something I Never Had

     I want every child to have the happy childhood that I never had.  I want them to keep their innocence and carefree nature. However, I do not want them to be sheltered.  I do not want any child to end up like me because of a miserable childhood.

    No Fools

    Children live on instinct, that is all they’ve got. They haven’t trained in bullshit, like the adults with a lot. You can never force a child to trust you if it can’t. They don’t use your tactics, they don’t see things at a slant. ...

    Why would anyone want to harm a child?

    They love unconditionally. And are so amazing. I love children...but I'm not having any. I got so many nieces nephews and little cousins I can borrow a few without anybody noticing.

    Children don't choose to come into the world. They are defenseless and dependent on adults in every way. I believe it is the job of parents to provide a safe, healthy, happy home to their children. I feel so horrible for the children in the world who grow up in orphanages and...
