My Doodles Series -- 16: Children Crucified


_


 Doodles on Children on the Cross © Jerome D'Costa

Every day thousands of children are crucified all over the world. They are put on the cross by way of abuse -- physical, psychological or sexual -- and by neglect, human trafficking, prostitution and the like. The saddest thing is that, in many cases, certain family members themselves are involved in this sort of inhuman activities.

In most cases, these children being innocent and naive, do not even realize that they are being abused and used by adults. They easily give in to the adults' wishes and machinations and they are not able to defend themselves. That is why in some of my doodles children are seen smiling even though they are being exploited most brazenly.
