Why does the World seem so cruel? I read a news item in the Metro paper on Friday about a teenager who microwaved a six week old kitten for 20 seconds - the poor thing was so badly injured it had to be put down. To add insult to injury the youth was only given a 120 hour community service order - why is life valued so little nowadays? Where is the justice for that poor tortured animal?

In the Mirror newspaper today there is an article on women prisoners in Afghanistan. One girl was married off at 10 years old and was beaten each night by her husband, she tried to run away and for that crime has been given 15 years in prison. Imagine your own daughter in that situation - it doesn't bear thinking about.
