Home Grown Terrorism

I recently discovered a blog ( ) by a very talented blogger that, despite her daily suffering, has decided to show the world the stark reality of her struggle. A lifelong ordeal caused by being molested by her brother at a young age. It is heart wrenching, yet I think everyone should read it. Experts say that 1 in 6 children will be abused. Less than 1 in 10 ever tell anyone about it. We cannot afford to look away anymore. We MUST collectively find our voice and face down these home grown terrorists... We must open our eyes to the terror they cause.

Home grown terrorists.. home..
Sleeper cells...that
Awake when everyone
And terrorize..
The smallest victims..
The horror we don’t feel..
The actions we don’t take..
Allows the terrorist to creep..
And select their prey..
Poor little corpses..
Pumped with nauseating
Bullets that kill slowly..
....over a lifetme
that don’t kill themselves..
That maim and kill
for no higher God..
and we?
We do nothing...
We're all a bunch of cowards..
Look the eye..
And ask yourself...
Where were you?
Where were you?
When they came......for the children?
