Indian Rape Victim

by Patrick Liew on January 2, 2013

Thoughts about a young and promising life, cruelly put to an end in a brutal gang rape have been on my mind. And they continue to deeply sadden me.

My heart goes out to the victim and her loved ones.

My prayer goes up for them to find strengths to cope with the tragedy, resilience to press on, and wisdom to reconstruct their lives and build for a better future.

I pray that this life, lost in such a senseless tragedy will be a turning point for the community and the world at large:

That at the highest level of governments, leaders will enforce justice and ensure that such a crime will never happen again;

That men will respect the dignity of women and together, we will continue to help raise their standing and create equal opportunities for them;

That humankind will be inspired to stand together and help protect every single person regardless of his/her creed, culture, colour, custom and country of origin; and

That we will never again stand by and do nothing against the forces of evil. We will do our part to help police the streets and keep it safe and secure for all our children and children’s children.

My prayer and hope is that this heinous crime will not bring about any negative reaction and outcome. This rape cum murder tragedy will start a new day of peace, kindness and compassion for the world.
