I Wonder Why These Things Continue to Happen

I read a terribly sad news story yesterday about a very cute four-year old boy who was brutally murdered by his step-father with the acquiescence of his mother.

Read the story at the link Ethan Stacy or here.

I was totally disgusted with the entire occurrence--especially how the mother went to marry her son's killer and kept the kid locked in a room at home because he was too disfigured to go out in public. And she took pictures of him on her cell phone.

And why was Ethan with his mother to begin with? Because the courts demanded she be allowed visitation over the protestations of his father who has custody--but could not protect young Ethan from his mother.

Why do people do these things?

Maybe I'm just very sensitive this week having been able to spend time with our own Ethan and watching Nicole and Jackson go through such horrific testing in the hospital. We are working out of love to protect and nurture our children and grandchildren.

Isn't that the way it should be?

This situation just sickens me and reminds me in no uncertain terms of the depravity in our world today that we must consistently be aware of.

Pray for all of those involved in this situation and especially for the father.

Then find and hug your kid/grandkid and/or loved one and make a promise to protect them against the deepening depravity in this world.
