(no subject)

Today is a day of shame  for my country.

Years ago, a couple kidnapped children.  The man was/is a pedophile. While her husband was in prison, the woman LET THE LITTE GIRLS DIE of starvation in the cellar. She let them die all alone in the dark. She didn’t free them, didn’t warn the police or the neighbours. She did nothing to help them/feed them.

Well, today, this woman is free. She’ll live in a convent, will be fed, will have water and a warm bed and all the things she denied the girls. She will be even allowed to have a stroll in town in she wants to.

She said she was “under the influence of her husband”. But, as far as I am concerned, I think she is as guilty as he. She LET THEM DIE. Can you just imagine the horror? Not only what the man did to them (that she let him do that to little girls (while being a mother herself!!!) is already awful and unforgivable) but the long agony afterwards? And if one died before the other? The poor girl had to stay with her friend’s corpse in that dark cellar????

And now she’s free.


So, tonight, I’m upset, and ashamed and furious.
Sorry for the rant, but I just needed to express my feelings.
