    I have never been so disappointed in another's post as I am at this moment. @ saywhat, I have come to the conclusion that those who harm a child in any way NEED to repent BEFORE they succ umb to death. Their crimes have trickled down far beyond the eyes of the public who have no idea of the destruction they have caused.
    No one who commits these acts is in any way "a kind of me" (your 12:44 post)
    I can't believe you would ever say such a thing.
