Been a long time hasn't it?
Well despite my banner's living in fantasy I wanted to - today - discuss a real life, world-wide issue, which concerns even us as teenagers, as young adults, or even as recently named adults! The issue concerning me and of course the world today, is child abuse.
Child abuse is a horrid act by which children get hurt either physically, emotionally or sexually. The thing is it can happen to anyone by any type of aggressor, could be within the family like a father, a mother, a sister, a brother; or it could be an outsider such as a friend of the family, a stranger who the child met whilst going to school or coming back.
Physical abuse is of course the one most observed because of cut marks, bruises, blood spatters, irregular rashes etc... The thing is, this is wildly spread because parents usually dont know how to punish their children without hitting or screaming, and violence most certainly leads to violence, the child WILL grow up to be just like those before him. Emotional abuse is one of the most less noticed ones because the child is hurt emotionally, the child may be neglected, pushed to think the parents dont like the child. Or perhaps intentionally destroying his toys, most favorite possessions etc...
Last but not least sexual abuse, which is the most horrible acts of all. This abuse is the one whereas the child gets his or her innocents taken away, the child then will think of well disturbing things and will be scarred for the rest of his/her life! This is most simply named rape or sexual assault, and this is the one that is most frequent in countries that have a lot of felons, a lot of mistreatment in the childhood years.
It should not hurt to be a child, a child who is not capable of either protecting himself because of inferiority or because the child thinks its disrespect to not obey the rules set by his parents or by an elder. So what can the child do? sit there and think I have to do this because this is the way life is? Absolutely not! He/she should fight for their lives as children, contact school teachers, or school officials, contact child services - because what is life if you get abused from your childhood and get to do the same to your children in the future?
The picture is pretty self explanatory, and yes what happened on the picture most certainly happened in real life because people tend to get mad at work, and cannot do anything about it, but choose to get it out on souls they think are inferior physically, emotionally and financially. The fact remains fact, children get abused daily, what can we do really about that? You say what can I do? Show your support!
Blue ribbons are for KIDS! If people support the movement of CHILDREN SECURITY then most certainly we can show our support to the children themselves. Blue ribbons represents hope, hope that some day children wont be a toy that can be kicked or screamed at just because it is not your size; hope that someday children can grow up to be different, to stop the cycle of harm and abuse; hope that someday children will now how to truly live a life of prosperity and fun-filled moments not only with their father, mother, family and friends but also with people of the community!
I have showed my support with wearing BLUE FOR KIDS ribbon Tee, and if you would like to show your support please contact me to get you a shirt! Show your support for the children who are helpless, this is a virtual world, and thats the LEAST we can do to help :)
If enough people buy and wear this I can do a poll for who wore it best!
Hope this helped open your eyes to the real world,
