Social Responsibility & Haleigh Cummings

Some thoughts that come to mind when I think about Haleigh Cummings and Caylee Anthony and other children that have gone missing - and robbed of life;


The convolution to sort through over a simple single event of a child gone missing – is mind boggling, when it would only take one person to just come forward with the truth.

The lengths that people connected to this case have gone to obscure and cloud the discovery of Haleigh is a shining example of just how damaging drug abuse is to an innocent child born in its’ midst.

It is the core cause of this case from the beginning and I firmly believe that society as a whole has a social responsibility to these innocent children, not only to report drug addicted parents to the authorities, but a greater responsibility for the judges who oversee and administer the law to ensure that these unfit drug addicts “parents” lose their right to “raise” and “influence” their offspring and are additionally prevented from bringing any more children into the world and continuing this cycle of abuse.

Only by cutting off the poison tree branch from the trunk can society hope to foresee a future of health and optimistic possibilities – a scenario which has been in decay and decline for way too long. I believe in second chances, but there comes a time when enough is simply enough – and in this case. enough was enough a long time ago.

Let’s keep up the good fight, society. A socially responsible person’s concern is about bettering the environment they live in, no matter what it takes in spite of what the irresponsible says, thinks or feels. Just because they live in fear of being found out doesn’t mean that they should enable us to fear them, either by retaliation – or by any other means.
It’s time courage takes the lead – and “right” outweighs “might”.

And hopefully, there will be less Haleigh’s and Caylee’s in the world to worry about – and the norm of having a child a day gone missing will be a thing of the past. All it takes to care for a child that you may think is in harms way – is to make a simple phone call. A proactive stance – before the damage is done is the only way to protect and insure our most valuable investment in societies future.
