Compassion

21/12/2010 - 23:51

Thank you Yvette for writing this post about an appallingly sad situation.

The reality of the situation for the children held in detention should be known by all.

We need to ensure we look after these children with the care and compassion they deserve. Yes, It is about what we can do and right now we are not doing nearly enough.

I hope that we (as a country) are not changing the way we treat those far less fortunate than ourselves. To be honest I am worried that we are not as compassionate as we could be, should be or as we have perhaps been in the past. I think as a society we are changing and not necessarily for the better. I hope I am proved wrong.

It takes a village to raise a child and right or wrong, some parents have died to get their children to ours - lets take on that responsibility and help those children.

Thanks for the link in the PS - it has been wonderful to help (albiet in such a small way).
