When the idea of children, or a child comes to the mind of many individuals the thought of innocence and joy is closely followed. Children are always they from the moment they are born bringing of sense of happiness and eagerness to learn about the world around them. From big to small childhood is a phase in one’s life that parents want to make sure is that of pure joy, and one that they will truly remember. However, is that always the case?
Recently, the CDC, Center of Disease Control, released statistics stating that girls under the age of 10 in the United States faced 400,666 rapes that were described as forcible within the United States in the past year.
One has to ask the simple question” Why is such a travesty even occurring?” When a child is adopted by a family, or even when custody is handed over a full investigation is done on past criminal discrepancies. Yet, no one truly knows what happens behind closed doors in an instant like so.
Many child rapists can be seen walking freely, unknown by the general public due not only to the nature of their crime, but thanks to the age of the individual the crime was against. Most of the time children do not have a voice when getting a “loved” one in trouble with others, and ultimately the law.
Statistics have also stated that within the United States 1 in 5 women have been raped within their lifetime. Most of the crimes such as these occur at an early age. Yes, sometimes these criminals are caught, but most of the time individuals simply do not say anything and by the time they would like to they are usually older and facts cannot be separated from opinions from the past.
Overall, rape might not be assumed to be in some situations, but it is there whether you’d like to believe it or not. When an individual suspects that child abuse or rape is occurring they are advised to not only seek legal help, but also the help of the law in order to save the children now, and later in life.
