It's my cannabis education that also informed me about Human Trafficking - and how we waste time & resources with Drug trafficking - it's shameful. I don't understand it.
I understand less.. people who are capable of sexually/physically abuse & hurt children - Then add the worst element you possibly can- the children are being perpetrated & used, abused by their own parents- is just FUCKING EVIL.
& for any who dare to argue Kids are o.k. with it - should read this book. The anger in his words years later- you can still feel his pain. I could .. it took me a long time to read this book, I had it before the last 2... it is a true story of sexual abuse of a little boy and a very tragic story. While reading I kept thinking - If I could get at his mother... why didn't someone help him? How could they allow this to happen.. the name calling that went in my mind was not a good place to be. I had to finish. If this man could endure what he did and then share it with us to educate - how can I not read it and try to help to bring awareness. Not seeing it' will not make it go away- not seeing it does not mean it does not happen.
At one point when he talks about most of the men who come to have sex with the kids - don't even care to remove their wedding rings... they wonder - do they have children at home? It literally made me feel sick to my stomach a few times. If you think it doesn't mentally mess them up - read the book, see what is happening - the hate this creates - as far as I am concerned this is the sickest act an adult can achieve and I believe they should be severely punished. If you can't control your self around children sexual/physically -YOU are in fact the one with the problem... get castrated... before some innocent childs' life is destroyed because of lack control by an deranged egotistical, evil adult, as for the mother in the book - I have no words. I know what I was wishing would happen to her as I was reading - so YES, I was let down at the end to read she was not taken out back and beaten.. as she did so many times to that baby boy. He could never understand why no one said anything... What would you do if you suspected someone of abusing children... it can be a very serious implication to someone in a negative way- but far more serious to a child who is LIVING through the HELL.
I understand people who hurt, hurt... this is not just inflicting pain - this is degrading a human so low they can hardly function, a tiny human.. who does not deserve this in any way. The money we waste on DRUG trafficking when this sort of thing is happen NOW to children is a terrible sign of a struggling society. Read it.
It has inspired a few drawing editorials when I stop feeling so sick about it.
I am very grateful to Joe Peters for sharing this - it must be incredibly difficult still- although it ends with him and he is with a wife and children of his own.
