Did you ever see the movie Sleepers?
It's an old movie (Came out in 1996), but I saw the movie sometime last year and it is very very touching.
It's about 4 boys sent to a juvenile detention center, after playing a prank that went terribly wrong. While in the detention center, they were mentally, physically and sexually abused by a few of the guards.
A more indepth review can be found here .
This movie kept popping up in my head while reading a couple of blogs and comments.
I finally put my scattered thoughts together, the result.....
Abuse be it mental, physical, sexual or verbal
Is a disease that cuts through boundaries,
It's not a respecter of gender
It's not a respecter of age
It's not a respecter of social status
It's not a respecter of profession
It's not a respecter of race
It's not a respecter of country
Abuse is not a respecter of people.
It's a disease perpetrated by sick people!
