I like many others have been shocked by what happened to 6 year old baby boy, Arthur. His pictures resonated with me and I am horrified by how anyone could do this to their child, or any child. It also made me think, how could social services not see any red flags here? This then made me think of the amount of abuse that children are raised with, whether it be emotional or physical and the impact it can have on them as they grow older. Children watching their parents being emotionally abused can reduce their lifespan. In our communities, do we really do enough to help our children thrive in the best conditions? I pray for Arthur and other children in the past like Baby P.
