BBC reports that already by age 20, 1 in 10 girls have been raped or secually assaulted.
That equates to 120 MILLION girls globally.
Many are then brutally murdered and shamed as we have been reading about, now with all too much frequency, in India for example, with young women being raped, killed, and then hung from trees etc.
What is wrong with this world???
Women are our mothers, wives, and daughters–they are often amongst the most compassionate and caring of us.
This is how we treat them?
Unfortunately, rape and abuse is also a crime against many young boys.
It is time to take a serious ethical pause and stop the violence against our children and against other adults.
The screams and scars of those abused hang in the air as an indictment against those committing the crime as well as those that do nothing to speak out.
