as I read reports that are coming in about 5-year-old Shaniya Davis, who was apparently sold into prostitution by her mother, and whose body has just been found by police. The photos are haunting...security cameras capturing a man carrying her(partially dressed) out of a hotel.
I can't even begin to fathom the depths of insanity into which a person would have to sink before allowing such awful things to happen to their own daughter. Shaniya was absolutely beautiful, and became the prey for nasty, wicked, sex-crazed men to abuse...at the consent of her mother.
I know that the Bible speaks of all sin being equal in the sight of God, but I can't help but think that there is an even more miserable place in hell for those who perpetrate crimes against defenseless children.
We should remember to pray for the children, both in America and in other countries, who are literally being sold into slavery every day. We should also be alert because there are those in our own towns and communities that will kidnap children, take them to bigger cities or out of the country, and sell them into the trade. It is horrific, but it is true. The facts are stunning.
"Rest in peace, Shaniya, for you are safe now in Jesus arms."
