Where Have All the CHILDREN Gone?

Dateline:  2010.  The news was devastating.  A catastrophic earthquake had occurred in Haiti, affecting several million of its people–thousands of them children. They were suddenly homeless, parentless, friendless, hungry, naked, and poor. News reports soon surfaced that many had been kidnapped for use in the sex slave trade–an easy commodity for entrepreneurs. These fiends committed criminal atrocities under the guise of Christian humanitarian assistance in a time of disaster. 

Those events bring to mind an insidious disorder infecting our children’s security right here in the good ole U.S.A.  Listen up, folks.   It’s dangerous out there for our children and grandchildren!

Vicious animals are prowling our neighborhoods in each state, county, city and town; they are  ever increasing in numbers and baseness.  Labeled as pedophilic sex offenders, these revolting, cold-hearted, sex-fevered beings roam our streets seeking kids to devour and suck the life from them.  They snatch kids at play in their backyards or playgrounds or walking home from school bus drops. They seize little ones while their parents momentarily focus on shopping or rip them out of their beds at night while the parents sleep. Days or weeks later, if ever, the sullied bodies are found cruelly butchered, stuffed into trash bags and tossed into garbage cans or city dumps.

 The predatory population has become so abundant, we’ve run out of areas to segregate them from the overall population once they’re released from prison! This has all happened on our watch, folks.

We turn a blind eye to the growing number of sexually explicit television shows and the vicious, blood curdling movies brashly offered by the entertainment industry. Have these anything to do with the rapid increase of violence against children? Do these invite mad and demented thoughts and actions on the part of the weak-minded or cruel among us?

We plunk our toddlers down in front of the television to babysit them while we go about our chores.  The almighty TV becomes the child’s teacher and parent.  Don’t we realize what we’re exposing children to over the hours and years of televised programming?   

Does raising our little girls from a young age to wear sexy clothes, compete in beauty contests, use makeup, walk and talk provocatively have anything to do with this sick, giddy pedophilic culture?  When will we realize that we are part of the problem? We have sacrificed our children to the gods of perverseness and licentiousness. When will we wake up and seek out this rottenness and tolerate it no more?

Where have all the children gone?

They’re hiding in their homes, behind locked school-house doors, under constant surveillance by cameras in gated playgrounds, or wherever we can provide secure areas for them. But some of them continue to come up missing, plucked from among us and forever lost.

My heart is broken, my spirit weeps, even the rocks cry out. Will you do all you can to protect our little ones? We owe them that!

    Jeanne, I’m grateful to Dicky To for referring me to your blog. This article reflects the cruel reality of a global epidemic and assault on children. It is sobering and scary, and too often, the world and sadly ‘the church’ can turn a blind eye. Christians need to speak out. As told in my recent novel (based on a true story), silence about pedophilia is one of the worst offenders of this epidemic of our times. The grave offense of sexual abuse of children makes an impact that can last a lifetime. (see NeverWalkInDarkness.com) (my novel is written under my author’s pen name, Davayda Daniels).

    Blessings

    • Susan,

      Thank you for your comment on the above post. Yes, pedophilia and sexual offenses against children, many times leading to their cruel death, is a global criminal activity. I will direct my mouse to your site and pursue your link.

      Shalom,
      Jeanne

    When I see girls (some are even at a young age like 10) wearing sexy clothes, I wonder what their parents teach them. Maybe they wear the same kind of dresses so that their daughters follow them. When I turn on the TV, almost every program shows sexy or violent stuff, very inappropriate for kids. My wife and I only allow our 2 boys watch TV on the weekend for limited hours. What they watch is usually family movies and we watch with them. I don’t know what parents are teaching their kids today; they are spiritually blind.
