The Cry of A Child

The Cry Of A Child The cry of a child, sometimes we can hear. The cry of a child sometimes can be seen. We should all be on the lookout to see when a child cries. Abuse can come in different forms.It is not always sexaul abuse. It can be physical, mental,or verbal, but it is still abuse. A church one day, invited group of kids for a retreat. The kids would have a week of fun. They would go camping, swimming, play games and attend church services. Since the first day - the paster notice a little girl, that did not talk to anyone and kept to herself. The pastor decided to focuses on her. The pastor noticed that she was dirty, had old tennis shoes and her uncombed hair was all over her face. The pastor took her to the side and asked her, why she didn't talked to anyone. She answered - because, I am mean dumb and ugly. The pastor told her - no, you are not. God did not make you dumb, mean or ugly. Who told you that? The little girl answered - my mother always tells me that. The pastor told her to join the rest of the kids. Then he asked some ladies of the church, to buy her a couple of dresses, some shoes and other things that she might need. Then to clean and dress her up. The next day they took her to the church service. Everyone was amazed at how pretty she looked. As the days went by, she learned to get along with the kids and could even smile now. When the week was over - she was a different little girl. She had confidence in herself. She went and thank the pastor for making her life different...

    Hi Lucy, so sad a poem, how true that everyone should treat a child with love and respect. God knows how many children suffer before growing up. Love Terry xoxoxo 7 >>>>

    Kids never take lightly what a grownup says. The very fact they are older, bigger (more experienced) makes them "wise" in the child's eyes. This is a good poem about being a role model for your kids. They are our future so don't corrupt their minds...
