I am absolutely horrified and deeply saddened by the recent news stories this week on the brutal and senseless deaths of young children. I am not shocked as it happens so often in many communities. The innocent are senselessly taken in vicious and unimaginable ways and it is unjust in every way.
How do we tackle this crime? Tougher penalties? Awareness campaigns? Lifelong education on not accepting violence and in not being violent? I do not have the answers.
I do support charities that campaign against violence and protect women and children. Let’s not take it anymore, let every woman and man say “no” to violence.
My heartfelt sympathy goes out to every family that has lost a child through violence.
