This world is made of pure evil,

I am a strong loving mother of two beautiful young girls, and I couldn't imagine ever bringing harm to them, a mother and father are supposed to love and protect their babies and always show them gentle hands. It makes me physically sick to read about the horror and tourture all of these innocent babies and children went through, I wish I could save them all and show them what a real loving mother is like, it's a shame they will never know and it's still going on today, for everybody that has tourture these innocent souls, I pray god has no mercy on you and u burn in he'll forever, and may God be with all his children
