I Pray the Authorities are Telling Us the Truth
Reports are that the deceased Nassau baby did not die of traumatic injuries from rape, but instead of a respiratory illness and an allergic reaction to medication given to her to treat it. I hope to God that this is true. Of course, I am suspicious, this is the Bahamas after all, where rape is epidemic, but I pray the authorities are telling us the truth. If they are, and the parents are indeed innocent, then my heart goes out to them for their loss. In the meantime our community needs to continue now to talk about what we will do about saving the many children of our country who are in fact victims of sexual violence.
