Shame . . . Silence . . . Stand down . . . Exorcism

Every day I buy your paper with my lunch. Today I was unable to. The sight of an innocent six-year-old's smiling face and the story behind what was allowed to happen to her is just that bit too much for me today, I'm sorry.

I could not bear the thought of hearing one more time that this child, and countless more, were defiled because there was no legal obligation for an individual, a representative of Christ, to prevent it.

I feel a terrible shame. A shame for those who know not what shame is.
