"Unicef's Regional Child Protection officer for West and Central Africa told the BBC more than 20,000 streetchildren had been accused of witchcraft in the DR Congo capital Kinshasa."
I know Africa and the US are literally worlds apart, but this just breaks my heart every time I read it. It seems as if we all complain and complain about how we are being "oppressed" or abused because of our religious path... But at least we have the right to have it. These poor children are innocent and aren't even witches, just children... I guess somethings never change, they just move...
Really makes me thankful to have that freedom, even if not everyone respects it! How about you?

It makes me feel sad, really over half the world lives under really deplorable and inhumane conditions and I don't know how people survive.

It is sad, but most of these people aren't even practicing witchcraft, not that being a witch is bad.. but albinos have been mutilated in Africa because they were thought to be cursed or witches, or something like that. It's really heartbreaking that people can treat other human beings so badly.
