Observations and Ramifications

Posted by Karen Hessen on Wednesday, March 27, 2013, In : child abuse 
I was running errands yesterday and while I waited at a red light Kurtis walked across the intersection. He doesn't recognize our new car yet, so did not see me watching him. He is such a handsome young man - as attractive as any male model you would find on a magazine cover. But he limps,...badly. It is his unusual gait that sets him apart. When Kurtis' abusive father hit him over the head with a chair, a large portion of his brain on the right side was damaged and did not send growth messag...

I always have to remind my son, Kurtis, that time has changed. I probably don't give him enough credit.

While there, I purchased a book, Over the Edge: Death in the Grand Canyon, by Michael P. Ghiglieri and Thomas M. Myers. The book goes into detail about e...

Child Abuse?

Posted by Karen Hessen on Tuesday, August 23, 2011, In : child abuse 
Doug and I have been vacationing. Our destination was Minneapolis, Minnesota. We were in Minneapolis to see the NY Yankees play the Minnesota Twins, but as good tourists we had to take in other sights as well. The sights included a trip to the Mall of America.

While walking through the Mall a child's screaming caught my attention. A little girl of about 4 or 5 years was being wrestled into position to have her ears pierced. The child was totally distraught, the mother totally determined. I cou...
