I can’t do anything other than be myself…. WHY???? Because I refuse to be any less than what
this world no, the world back then made.
A lot of people will laugh when I say, “before I started this site, I wasn’t this way”, but it IS true, at least in a way it’s true. After starting this site, and I do mean within 1 hour, I encountered something which I didn’t understand, and that was INDIFFERENCE toward Child Maltreatment. I haven’t gotten past it either; no matter how I tried to rationalize the “reasoning” in the possible answers those closest to me gave(in an attempt to avoid JUDGING) as reasons these “uninterested” and “unconcerned” individuals might be “Indifferent”.
The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines TRUTH as: the truth : the real facts about something : the things that are true: the quality or state of being true: a statement or idea that is true or accepted as true.
I do not play where Our Children’s welfare and well-being is concerned, and I am in fact very serious. When someone decides to educate me in this subject, I KNOW why, and that’s what is wrong with my attitude. When someone is serious, and PREPARED, about educating anyone, they don’t NEGLECT to teach you the last BIG CHAPTER in the subject.
Any of you can ask 2 of my former students, Aliana and Our Editor Aida, about the above paragraph, or just the word “prepared”, and I guarantee you will learn a great deal about me.
OK, I’ll explain a little of the above: to attempt to lessen, or even imply that I don’t know what I KNOW TO BE TRUE FIRST HAND, is not a smart thing to do, especially when trying to convince me and a good friend, who just happens to be one of my Advisers here, that a certain type of person has gotten a “bad rap” or is stereo-typed totally wrong. But to be totally PREPARED, and “APPEAR” Genuine, you don’t leave out the disclaimer!!!!
I have something I want to bring to your attention, The Centers of Disease Control and Prevention has updated it’s site, and their 2012 publication. Have ANY OF YOU EVER KNOWN OF CDC DOUBTING GOVERNMENT NUMBERS, AT LEAST PUBLICLY????
CPS reports of child maltreatment may underestimate the true occurrence. A non-CPS study estimated that 1 in 4 U.S. children experience some form of child maltreatment in their lifetimes.
Under the first heading “Child Maltreatment”, you will see one(1) paragraph, followed by a “non-ordered list” which is called a bulleted statement, after two(2) bulleted statements, you will see the second(2nd) paragraph, which is the above paragraph.
Earlier I neglected to finish what I wanted Our Circle to KNOW. What someone chose to leave out is a small thing most times, the thing I called the disclaimer, Which in this case it represents OUR CHILDREN that are victims of Child Maltreatment. The disclaimer is always below, or purposely written smaller, and says: IT IS ESTIMATED THAT ONLY ¼ OF THE ABUSE CASES ARE REPORTED.
