This is a world where children are slaughtered in Syria, their soft little bodies discarded like used dolls.

This is a world where UN peace keepers in Haiti, Sierra Leone, Bosnia, Cambodia and other war-torn communities rape and sexually abuse girls as young as 12 years old.

This is a world where toddlers asphyxiate in a mall’s nursery in Qatar because the owners thought it would be cheaper to scrap the water sprinklers and fire alarm system.

This is a world where 8 year old Yemeni girls are forced to marry and then bleed to death on their “wedding night”.

And this is a world where Lebanese girls between 6 and 8 years of age get raped and sexually molested by their teacher at one of Mount Lebanon’s prestigious schools.

And this is news which I read in one publication within 30 minutes.
