Speak for the Children and Be Their Voice

How many of you experienced firsthand being abused while you are still young by people you personally know or by strangers and have not got the courage to report it to authorities or to tell anyone about it?

Have any of you witnessed people, young and old, bullied and abused but have done nothing about it to stop it?

Do you know a child being bullied, abused, disrespected and yet you do nothing to help?

How would you feel if you are abused, bullied and experiencing violence and yet no one cares to help you, to defend you and to take you away from that situation?

An act that harms and mistreats children either physically, sexually, mentally or emotionally is child abuse.

Physical Abuse is the most visible sign of children being abused. It is the use of any kind of violence or force against children that causes injury, pain, physical suffering or even death.

Sexual Abuse is a non-consensual physical contact on anyone and on any child. Forcing, pressuring, asking a child to do sexual activities with or without consent is a crime.

Mental or Emotional Abuse is a form of abuse through words by calling names, ridiculing, belittling, shaming, degrading, humiliating, destroying of personal belongings, threatening, bullying, ignoring and rejecting a child or exposing the child to violence.

Nobody in their sound mind would want to be in any kinds of abuse. In situations where adults can hardly defend themselves against these abuses, it’s hard to imagine these kids who are helpless, innocent and powerless who can’t fight for themselves. Just by the thought of it, it’s sickening how abusers can face a day without guilt in them. They should know that no person deserves to be in such awful situation.

Some abused children grew up unconsciously to be abusers. However, many abused children have become great parents too by motivating themselves to protect and take care of their children against the abuse they went through.

Let these kids have their chance and right to live a life safe from any sexual, verbal, physical, emotional violence and instead let them feel loved and protected.

What is the point of bringing a child into this messed up world if we are not going to take care of them?
