|An Old Story that Never Ceases|
|Monday, May 26, 2008|
Browsing through an October 31, 1959 Courier-Journal, I noticed on the front page these headlines: “7 Children Die In Blaze; Mothers At A Bar.” The opening line was this: “Ottumwa, Iowa, October 30 – Seven young children, trapped by fire inside a one-door house, died early Friday while their mothers were away at a bar.”
Things haven’t changed much in the 49 years since this tragic story occurred. Children are still being neglected and abused. Thank God for those mothers who love and care for their children. They are worth their weight in gold.
The following is a poem by an unknown writer – a mother, which expresses genuine by a real mother for her children.
