So, I guess Noal now has a penis not a noodle...

As much as I feel we live in a beautiful world, during a fascinating time & try to see the good in people - I also realize we live in a pretty screwed up place...


Feels like everyday you hear about a child getting kidnapped, killed, abused or the such...It's kinda overwhelming all the sick, twisted stories out there & hard to contemplate what one human can do to another...


Last week on fellow blogger Rebecca's startling post I read, "It is estimated that 90% of females with intellectual disabilities will be sexually abused"...Whether it's 90%, 80%, whatever the number is, the fact is people out there take advantage of those with intellectual disabilities...The fact is this is so disturbing, so wrong & so sad...The fact is that this scares the shite out of me...


This not only horrifies me as it would any parent...But makes me so terribly sad...Who are these people? And seriously what the hell is wrong with them? I just don't get it...


It's like the other day, I read about some right-crazed woman who sold pictures of her 11 yr old daughter naked online & then allowed men to pay & rape her in their own home...Hello, I'm not even going to get into the utter disgust I feel for this woman...But for some reason I couldn't stop thinking about those men's mothers...I mean you never really think about them right? 


But can you imagine? Can you imagine being a mum & getting a call telling you such disturbing news? Can you imagine what they must be feeling? Mothers whose sons use guns to kill innocent children in school yards...Mothers whose sons rape little girls...I just couldn't shake it out of my mind what they must be thinking, feeling & how they possibly could look at their sons again... 


I rocked Noal to sleep that night holding him tight, thanking God like I do every night for him...I'm sure many a mothers have done the same thing...Maybe even those men's mothers...Yet their little boys, their special sons turned into such monsters...The raw sadness they must feel...Those mothers who tried to do everything right, who loved their sons like they should yet somehow, someway they ended up doing something so very wrong...What a heavy thing for those mothers to carry in their hearts...


In a day where people are dying going to a movie, daycares are shooting grounds & mothers are helping abuse their children, one can only hope to not become a victim to the insanity of it all...


In Rebecca's post {HERE} she shared tips that every parent should read...Things like "Start early. Introduce correct terms for body parts." 


So, I guess Noal now has a penis not a noodle...


Thanks again for the eye opening facts Rebecca...Hard to read, harder to think about but important to know...



And y'all will be damn sure my hooligans will know their parts & such...

    sad thing. I think most of the sickos come from sicko parents and family. Like the current case in USA, a group of teenagers cyberbully a teenager over boyfriend stuff and it didn't end up well. This girl committed suicide. One of the teenagers come from a family the mother loves to beat the shite out of her six kids. This mom got arrested lately for child abuse. It is so so sad. I remember my girls' pediatrician doctor told my hubby and me that our kids are happy but some of the kids here (I live in Idaho State) are not happy and he could see from their sad eyes. So many people have kids for whatever their reasons but they just don't treat their kids right. It's sad to see some young kids (under 5-yos) walked on the street alone. Are their parents crazy or what?
    This world is somewhat screw up. hope all the sick parents got arrested and their kids got adopted by good people....
