Fonzie, u say God was kind and sent a message? Did u get the message? It said... "Your child is not safe!!!! do something about it and stop dreaming!!!" God helps those who help themselves and others too. My muslim friends told me that 20 years ago and reminded me of it 5 years ago.
Do u think it is right to place more than 2000kids in the hands of less than 100 adults in a school? Especially when those adults are stressed and overworked with 50kids each class? Did u fall out of bed this morning and bump your head? You think it is fair for 50 parents in each class to place their child's safety in one teacher's hands every working day? Parents should offer to help where possible and school administrators should learn to accept and work out some kind of system to allow parents to help without being a burden. It is such a simple thing to put to work. it will be carried on year after year even when the older batch leaves.
Barely a few days afer the Lick Hung case, another child gets murdered on her way to school. What does that show? Her screams were heard but people thought it was the sounds of children playing. See how complacent people get? See how ignorant people get? Next thing u see is a pic in the newpapers of family member crying at the scene. What does that tell you? The Will of God? No! Only that some misguided person who has no faith in God has decided to take the life of someone else's child away. Make amends? You tell that to her family. Maybe u should fly out to east Malaysia and tell her family that. help them overcome their grief. Carry the teachings of God to them. Console them. Try that and let me know how it goes. Maybe u can set up a hotline to help console those who hv had their child kidnapped, raped or murdered. Maybe God sent u to this world to do that. Might be your calling.
CHL dear, Thank you once again for standing up for me in my absence. You're an angel.
Joker, too bad our kids arent in the same school eh? Maybe in a few years? hehe.. We can terrorize the PIBG meetings. heheh..
P/S: anyone know what the statistics are on kidnap and rape cases in this country annually?
In case anyone would want to know, in Taiwan, if there is more than one kidnapper involved in a case, then it is mandatory death sentence, a bullet thru the head.
Oh Btw Fonzie, apology accepted since u were 'struck' possibly in the head? Peace to you.

Insecurity is unattractive. Smile and the whole world smiles with you.
