Is this really who we are?

I know I was going to be lighter today but once again the priorities of those in the society in which I live show through and I am disgusted and saddened. During investigations for a report entitled "CHILDREN IN STATE CARE COMMISSION OF INQUIRY: ALLEGATIONS OF SEXUAL ABUSE AND DEATH FROM CRIMINAL CONDUCT" which was delivered last week , Australians...

“when asked to place in order the matters in society that concerned them most, rising petrol prices came first and child sexual abuse came 14th out of 15"

Do please follow this link and read Sen. Bartlett's post.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised that people care so little about helping children who are not their own, given my own history, and yet that shocks me, it truly does.
