If you see a child being abused, please call the Police. [bodytext] => I'm begging you, please don't hit me again.
I'm not able to defend myself, I'm only ten.
Please don't hit me again, it hurts both physically and emotionally.
I don't deserve to be hit and if you were in my shoes, you'd agree.

My emotional scars can never be removed because of what you've done.
You've been a terrible father but I haven't been a terrible son.
Please don't hit me again, your blows bruise my body and make me bleed.
Being taken out of this house and put in a foster home is exactly what I need.

Empathy is the greatest virtue. Perhaps you might have written this genderless? Applauds.

I am sixty-four years old. I was an elementary teacher for thirty-three years. Children are sacred. Our Judeo-Christian-Islamist cultural tradtions are enough to conclude the Judeo-Christian-Islamist god does not exist. Physical punishment; whether it is inflicted on the young or what is considered to be a grown-up, is insanely anti-social...when anger accompanies physical punishment, the experience is decidedly DYSFUNCTIONAL. "Insanely anti-social" and "decidedly DYSFUNCTIONAL" pretty much describes mankind's societies. The beating of children; the administration of corporal punishment upon those who are chronologically developmentally innocent, or upon those who because of no fault of their own are developmentally innocent, is evidence of that society's lethal immaturity.

Your mind, heart, soul and spirit are in the right place. As you are able, the world will be blest if you are able to transfer you energies to the physical world.

Heart-felt blessings...enigma...ron
