When this happened , I cried for days.
She was killed a few miles from my home but lived about 20 miles away.
I never knew her but had friends that had children that were best friends with Rowan.
This is one of many sites.
This is a case of antipathy , ignorance, not wanting to be involved, blindness
what other adjective can I use?
A poverty worn mother who worked to support the family, a deadbeat husband or live in,
leaving a child with a man that was not her father.
The child was always hungry, I think she got only what she could scrounge in the summer or weekends.
She went to every church meeting, she helped anywhere there was any kind of gathering.
She helped at the food pantry, but would take nothing unless it was given to her. Even though
she had been seen stuffing 4 or 5 cookies in her mouth at one time, no one considered she was in need of
I do hope God took all pain and awareness away from her before the rape started......For Jesus loved
the little children and said let them come unto me
"Vengeance is mine saith the Lord I will repay" . I do not know where the Collins guy has been incarcerated
but even in prison men do not like men who have raped little girls. Collins is big but there is a violence
in prisons that can handle even big men. Whatever but I do not think God will let these men go easily punished
Rowan was also raped by the David Spears the man her mother was living with and he was too fat to get a job weighing
This is so hard to take

I saw this, too, on the news, but did not hear the details of how hard this child's life was. Heartbreaking, especially since no one helped put a stop to her suffering long before. Praying we all never ignore a child who needs help like this child did.
