Remembering April

I was just one of many thousands of on-line bloggers, tweeters etc who shared the news about the disappearance of little April Jones last Autumn. We hoped against hope that the power of social media might help, that she would be found, safe and well.

 

It wasn't to be, and yesterday Mark Bridger, a man well-known to the Jones family and someone young April would have trusted, was sentenced to life imprisonment. In this case, life will mean life. For April's family, the agony will never end as they do not know exactly what happened to their darling girl.

 

The court case has brought calls for greater controls on internet pornography, particularly child pornography which Mark Bridger was known to have downloaded. Few rational people would disagree with that - but it drives me to distraction that we seem to be concentrating on efforts to stop people accessing this material but hear little about action to bring to justice the vile people who are abusing children to produce those unspeakable images. Should there not be a concerted, world-wide campaign to track down and prosecute these evil people who steal and destroy the innocence of little ones?  Isn't it better to tackle the cause, as well as the effect?

 

RIP poor little April. Our world has not served you well.

Oh this made me cry!
The princess and the Pooh were all loved by my daughter to a point she hid them from multiple charity shop runs.
They were destined for you
