Girls have rights to be protected

Christina Taylor Green, age 9, went to meet her Congresswoman, Gabrielle Giffords, expecting to be inspired. Instead, she was murdered for no apparant reason. This madness abounds around the world and must stop. It is not ok to abuse, sell, rape or murder children, especially girls, the future leaders of our societies. We must teach love and respect starting now. Love is a decision and has to start with each person. Start it today. You decide how you want the world to be. I love you all.

Oh my God

I cant believe this. This is (Congress woman) supposed to be a leader representing the interest of the people, a listener and giude. What has become of us leaders?

I totally agree with you that we have to start love by loving our selves. Then we can love others. Sometimes people misunderstand selfishness for self love. Lets preach love.

girls need protection

Hi Grace,
Is is tragic how girls and women are treated everywhere. This incident brings home to we Americans how indifferent some men are to the lives of girls and women. It's like the 50 women in Sudan who were recently arrested, thrown in jail, protesting the government whipping a woman. They were imprisioned without the ability to see an attorney and without trial. These things don't happen to men do they.
