I was working in Photoshop today with a shade of purple, at times I just move my hands to where they want. In this case I was drawn to this child who is so sad, so abused. I am still shaking and crying. The Abuse in this world has become so overwhelming I cannot stop the flow of it. This is not the first one I have been lead to do but the first published .
It is time all think about the future of our Children.

    Extremely moving image – and a serious issue of injustice. Well done – no one person can stop it alone but perhaps your charge is to continually raise awareness. You’ve done that.

  • Thank you so much, finally added a title and music

    No one deserves abuse. And no one should have to live as if that was the only way to live… It is sad indeed. Children should be allowed to have simple lives. It occurs to me that abusive people are like the lower of the predatory animals, jackals, hyenas, possums… The don’t have the ability to play with strong adults, only the weak and helpless. Shameful. Mercy and Grace are for God to give… as for me? Hang ’em high!

  • On this I can agree,with you, only a higher power can forgive these animals.
    Thank you for commenting, I was just thinking about you today wondering how you were and knowing you were busy. Smile nice to see ya.
