Remembering The Past

Updated on April 30, 2013

How are you at remembering your past? Do you have fond memories or did your past fill you with nothing but Misery or Abuse?

I can remember mine like it was yesterday and all great memories to say the least. There are so many children that are brought up in a abusive home life. This can be due to many factors such as the main one, alcoholism in a family.

These children from the first day that they can comprehend are in the surroundings of alcohol. Fighting goes on between the parents and unfortunately, sometimes witnessing the death of one of their parents or both, due to temper, violence, outrage mostly coming from drugs or alcohol.

Some children are the ones that get the most abuse when the parents are under any kind of addicted substance. These poor children are to young to even defend themselves from the abuse they may endure.

If a abusing parent would put themselves in the shoes of that tiny child, how would you feel if it were you?

I can't say that every fight or disagreement comes from these addictions, but it is high on the list. There are so many other things that can trigger an argument between spouses, such as money issues, being unfaithful to spouses or acquaintances and so on.

I truly wish that every child in the world had the home life that I had. It was fantastic with so many fond memories. Florida trips ever year starting at age one and every year after till I began to drive. Trips to Niagara Falls a couple times. Antique Car shows, and numerous boat trips to the Chesapeake Bay.

My parents owned a home right on the Barnegat Bay in New Jersey. I spent every summer there with my sister and parents. We had the little boat in the back tied to the dock. It was the best life that you could ever have as a child growing up.

If I could only wave a wand and make every child on earth be as happy as I was with no violence in their life would be a wonderful thing, but unfortunately that's impossible as we all know. What is possible is that we the parents should take in consideration our children and protect them not abuse them. Give them the life that we would expect for ourselves.

These children will be scared for life being surrounded by what they have witnessed in their early years of life. Give them the love and respect they deserve, after all they did not ask to come to our world. We created them and it's our responsibility to love and protect then.



PLEASE LOVE YOUR CHILDREN THE WAY YOU WOULD WANT TO BE LOVED.  GIVE THEM THE LIFE THAT THEY DESERVE SO THAT THEY TOO CAN REMEMBER THEIR PAST WITH FOND MEMORIES.

      This is one of the most gentle things you had done to me, to write an special mail to apologise. My dear, dear friend, you do not have to be sorry. It is not your fault that there is wickedness in our world.

      This video must be seen by more people. Most of us live in our own little bubble, and forget to look a little further than our comfort zone.

      This is way beyond my comfort zone, and now I will raise my voice harder against this kind of things happening. I could not believe what adults are capable of doing to kids. It's neccesary to blow a whistle, they are too helpless to do it themselves.

      I just wished we could take such people doing this, place them in a garbage shuttle, and shoot them off to Pluto.

      I'm sorry, I did not mean to upset anyone. It's just that these things really bother me and I"m sure the rest of the world.
