Reflection of Mind


Recently, i read an article "Ausrian admits incest, pleads innocent to murder" from the BBC News. In this article an Austrian father raped his daughter to keep in captivity in a dark underground room. The daughter gave birth six children and the DNA test showed the daughter's father was the biological father of those six children. The interesting thing is the father covered his face with a card and wore a gray suit when he raped his daughter because his daughter could not recognize him.

In which world are we living? Do we have humanity? Are we considered the best creation of God? Are we becoming lower than beasts? Where a girl can be saved?

It seems to me we are the people of before ancient time when nobody understood humanity, civilization, responsibility. If a girl has no safety in her father's house, husband's house, where is her securuty and real address. We are the people who are talking about women's empowerment, but women have no security in anywhere.So, how can they be developed themselves?

First of all, we have to give them certainty of their security. Then they can be like a free bird and make a peaceful and beautiful world through their intelligent, intrigrity, skills and honesty.

As a women my request to all the people, don't think about women as only a sexual partner. Give them opportunity to established themselves and expand your hands to them with sincerety and sympathi.
