Research again

I'm doing a project for Parenting class. Actually, for the first time, I think I may actually ask to switch topics. My topic is on Child Abuse and I really never expected it to be as intense as it is. I think I have probably started crying at least 3 times when reading all of this stuff. I mean, I knew that it was a problem, but I didn't realize how serious it has gotten. The one thing I read that just killed me was that 4 children per day die as a result of child abuse. 87% are under 8, 79% are under 4, and 44% are under 1. I don't understand how a parent could do that to their child. Especially one so helpless and defenseless as a 1-4 year old. That's insane. It's awful. I really think that I may quit this project.

Prenatal nutrition looks really good right about now.

Don't quit. They need more criers for the innocent.

I know, but I don't think that they need more people having emotional breakdowns. And that's all I need. To get up in front of my class and start bawling. I may try it for another week. I don't know.
