“Dreams are black.
Youth is black.
The future and history are black.
Death, too, is black.”

“The light has gone out of my life” - Teddy Roosevelt’s diary entry from the day his wife Alice died of kidney failure.
This is Sophia. She is three years old and was a beautiful, kind little girl. On Saturday morning, she was beaten and sexually assaulted by her mother’s boyfriend. She was beaten to the point of major head trauma and was on life support until yesterday afternoon, where she passed away. Arrests have STILL not been made on the boyfriend or the mother, who told the police she had choked on food and waited an hour before calling the cops, using the time to clean Sophia up. She’s been with the boyfriend since this happened, and hasn’t done anything to help Sophia’s case.
CHILD ABUSE IS NEVER OKAY. Every day, children are beat and molested, and Sophia isn’t the first and will not be the last to endure something like this. PLEASE REBLOG AND GET THE WORD OUT. Our town is very small and we want to raise as much awareness for child abuse as possible. This has changed our community and we are all beyond upset.
