Tangent: Trick or Treat

At this time of year when ghosts and witches are abundant, I would like to write about something serious, which is so prevalent in our communities today.

Child abuse.

I painted this very quickly in an attempt to show the guile of many adults in their shoddy dealings with children (often their own.)

They censure them with one hand while enticing them with the other.

We always talk to our kids about 'stranger danger', but nowadays it's the very hand that feeds them that wields the pain and horrors.

Happy Halloween,

Please protect the children!
