I believe in karma. truly. I recognize that there are people out there who should believe in karma. I believe anyone who would hurt a child is pathetic. I believe in the heart and strength of a child to rise above the darkness of abuse. I believe in the bravery of a child to say that hurting them is not okay, and I admire that bravery even as I am a little awed by it. I believe in others who recognize the inescapable truth that it is wrong to hurl hurt at a child and will choose to protect the children. I believe that karma can be wonderfully full of goodness and grace. I also believe that karma can be a nasty nasty bitch when one chooses to hurt those that they have power over. That is all I have tonight, friends. Hugs and kisses and gentleness and grace.
