I’m angling for forgiveness after this tirade, certainly not permission to have it. Guilty or not, I don’t care. I am furious that people can continue to live solely within their ego. I’ll use the words ‘suspected and accused’ once.
How can a recipient of national honours, holders of office or influential positions be it church or state be linked, whisper thin, within reach of child sex scandals?
How dare they.
When standing up in their suit in front of the Queen and world press, how can they not be thinking that the one, two or ten times they interfered with someone under age, that day or years before, will not return to confront them. Where is their moral compass?
I’m so sick of people, if we can be so generous to call them human, that continue to step up onto the pedestal, accept the fanfare and adulation – knowing full well of their twisted past. Their sparkling covers hide the vile darkness within them. We applaud and ignorantly miss their shadows.
Children. In a parallel universe they are getting their own back – I just wish we knew how. Children are so precious, their innocence must be nurtured and protected at all costs.
The sickness of those who are entertained by children in this manner will never be something I can understand. I simply cannot grasp it and I cannot forgive it.
We are all role models. Every time we accept praise, public or private, we are held to account. Grace and modesty is a rare commodity in this world. It wouldn’t hurt for people to check theirs and see if they deserve the applause.
If not, step down off the pedestal, turn around and reconcile with those you have damaged. The Royal Commission should be within their own hearts, as yellow as it may be.
They lost a part of their young life. You deserve to lose all of yours.
