angelophile: (Rosencrantz & Guildenstern)

12 year old girl left to die in agony, court told.

"You will hear evidence from children who were out playing in the yard that later in the day the girl began to talk about fairies and witches and she said a limousine was coming to pick her up ... The girl said yeh, I can see the light now, and she just stopped breathing."

No punishment is too severe.

If I ruled the world, charges would be brought against the social workers who could have saved her life as well.

Every now and again I read something that breaks my heart into tiny pieces and makes me want to cry.

This is one of those times.

"I've been a soldier and a slave. I've seen my comrades fall in battle or die more slowly under the lash in Africa. I've held them in my arms at the final moment. These were men who saw life as it is, yet they died despairing. No glory, no brave last words, only their eyes, filled with confusion, questioning "Why?" I don't think they were wondering why they were dying, but why they had ever lived."
