I have one word for you: GAZA. If you see what happens there, then you will realize that humanity has failed. Children being killed for no reason: where are their rights? Human rights is only for those who have privileges not for those who truly deserve it in this day and age: at least that's what seems to be happening now.

I wish there was a way for that to happen. But, unfortunately, there will always be 'humans' (I hesitated to cell people who hurt children human) out there who will hurt any and everyone, including children.

Responsible parenting is not welcomed these days it seems. What a shame.
