Children in Debtors Prison
THIS IS A MOST TERRIBLE THING.
I found this story on Youtube.com and I guess the more you look as i have been compelled to in my research, the more you find but honest to goodness when i see stuff like this I get demoralized. So i want to ignore it or not focus on it any longer. Fact is, I have too because these things are killing us and and the people we care about and it’s just becoming so clear that this nightmare must stop.
