After watching the above video as a Mother and a Christian I sit here a little confused. I am angry that a little girl lost her life at the hands of people whom her mother trusted. I am sad for the Mother of the convicted who whailed and screamed at her daughter in the courtroom. However I am also confused by the response of the two ladies involved.
While I am sure it must have been hard (at best) to hear that you have to spend the rest of your life in prison. It would seem the lawyers would have prepared them. Not only that if you beat a child to death for urinating on the floor, what else would you expect? I wonder what was going through their minds? Did they think they would not be convicted? Did they think that they would have received a lighter sentence? What do you think? Was their sentencing to Life in Prison fair? Did you feel any remorse for the mother who was obviously concerned abut her daughter who was laid out on the courtroom floor?
Even more importantly, how are we supposed to pray for these young women? With Jerry Sandusky and the Penn State child molestation scandal and Casey Anthony being acquitted of murdering her daughter. What should our prayers consist of? When we are disgusted and angered by the actions taken against innocent little children how do we find it in our hearts to pray for those guilty of harming them? Do you pray for them?
Looking forward to reading your responses.
