All I know is desperation and pain
No matter I cry, cry out loud, and loud
My chocked voice, my screaming, my tears and fears
All I see horror and hurt, All I know is desperation and pain….
All I dream is grow and shine, to fly like sparrow to enjoy the rain
But battered and abused, in despair and death, All I know is desperation and pain
The above mentioned painful phrases are question of millions of children who are abused. They ask that what future do we want to offer them, what #ChildDevelopment are we aspiring for and what impact are we making. Sexual abuse is becoming more widely applied form of #ChildExplotation in many countries. A child right practitioner Judith Lewis presents that , “Many abused children cling to the hope that growing up will bring escape and freedom, but unfortunate truth is that it never happens”.
Abuse manipulates and twists a child’s natural sense of trust and love and the personality formed in the environment of coercive control is not well adapted to adult life. Mostly abused children don’t survive and the unfortunate survivors live the life with fundamental problems in basic trust, autonomy, and initiative.
They approach the task of early adulthood―establishing independence and intimacy―burdened by major impairments in self-care, in cognition and in memory, in identity, and in the capacity to form stable relationships but in true sense they lose the essence of life and remain prisoner of their childhood; attempting to create a new life, what they re-encounter is the torture and trauma.
My plead to all human loving and child rights practitioner would be that, stand against these odds to compel them #stoprapenow;
“Don’t turn your face away. Once you’ve seen, you can no longer act like you don’t know.
Open your eyes to the truth. It’s all around you. Don’t deny what the eyes to your soul have revealed to you.
Now that you know, you cannot feign ignorance. Now that you’re aware of the problem, you cannot pretend you don’t care. To be concerned is to be human. To act is to care.” @UNAction.
