We as humans become disconnected from ourselves and loose focus on the real meaning of life... I S ~ L I F E !!!
We are lost in a world of madness, money and greed. Drowned in social media, lost in our phones. Desensitizing ours minds. Loosing focus on what is most important. We waste ourselves away like we have no purpose.
This may be a little intense so bare with me as I try to be easy and discreet. This affected me like nothing has ever affected me in my life before.
I feel deeply affected by a video I seen scrolling through my usual social media site FB. It was of a small child, female... probably no older than 5 or 6 yrs of age. The video automatically played for all to see. And to my disbelief of what my eyes were witnessing... I felt like my fate in humanity had been stripped away from my soul. My eyes immediately began to water. Although, I only seen about 5 seconds of this video. It only took those misally 5 seconds to break my heart, my soul and my thoughts.
The video displayed a small female child being sexually abused by an older male.
To know this type of thing happens more often than not. To actually see it in the act, is worse than just reading about it.. .or knowing "it just happens"
To see this video and feel absolute pain and horror for this small precious being whose innocence was being ripped from her soul, body and mind.
Makes me feel like our humanity is lost. The fact that it was allowed on FB, for all to see, for all to witness the pain and suffering of this small child. Made me feel absolutely helpless. My soul felt drained within seconds. I will never forget this image imprinted in my mind, the helpless feeling I felt over come me.... it stays with me even now. It drives me to want to make a change, and not watch the horrible things that happen. I want to make a difference... I want my life to have meaning.. I want to save these poor children from monsters like this. This 5 seconds of video has forever changed me, and has me in tears even now. I know it may never stop, I know people will turn their heads and act like its not affecting them.
All I know is from here on out... I will be more aware, and I will find away to make my fellow beings aware of this very REAL problem.
We can help the helpless. We can TRY to make a difference. I know I will.
