Empowering civic activism toward a culture of peace.

This past week I witnessed two separate incidents of a mother slapping her small child.  In the first, I was standing in line at Old Navy.  Up ahead, a couple little kids were running around.  I don’t know what happened, some misbehavior I guess.  The mother chased after the little girl and scolded her with a hearty swat.  I recoiled inside.  But, outside, I just stood there with the other shoppers in line:  La la la, I see nothing.  Minding my own business, la la la.


The second occurrence happened on a city bus.  There was a woman with a baby carriage and two other little children.  The little girl, maybe 3-years-old was fussing over the baby, and the baby started to cry.  The mother immediately reached over and slapped the little girl, saying “What did you do to her!”


La la la, not my business.
