Land of the free
I am a great fan of youtube and watch clips from all over world, some time ago I watched a musical clip from Australia. It is a beautiful song and it describes the building blocks of Australia.
The chorus, goes something like this,

Quote:We are one, but we are many.
From all the lands on earth we come.
We share a dream, and sing with one voice,
I am, you are, we are Australian.

 The title of the song is “I am Australian”. It was written by Bruce Woodley in 1987 for the Seekers.
The chorus stayed with me for quite some time, not just because I liked the words, but there seems to be a familiarity with our own history, change the word Australian for the word American, and you would be describing our own history.
Just think, what makes our America great, it’s the people that call America their home. Who are those people? We are the descendents from nations all over the world. Just think, our DNA isn’t American DNA, its international. From all the lands on earth we come
Americans consider themselves to be world leaders, there are a lot of countries that look up to America. America as a nation defend the human writes wherever we can. We help other nations to keep them safe. In other words we are the peace keepers of the world. We help to defend the counties of our descendants. Did you know that a lot of us still have distant family living in these countries.

Pedophilia - Wikipedia
Pedophilia, or paedophilia, is a psychiatric disorder in which an adult or older adolescent experiences a primary or exclusive sexual attraction to prepubescent children.
I am a father of three daughters and 2 grandchildren. One of my daughters was a victim of a pedophile. She was forced to having sex with him under the threat of hurting her mum and dad.
In a period of 6 months, we saw our daughter turning from an active young girl into a petrified child.

It took us and a case worker three months to comprehend what had happened to our daughter. Her story was horrific. Apparently  an acquaintance  of the family had told her that we were in financial difficulties and that he would help us if she did whatever he asked her to do. He told her that if she didn’t do what he asked, he would hurt us. He told her that if she ever talked to anyone about their secret he would hurt her as well.

We went to the police and told our story. An investigation was started and it took almost a year to complete, that’s when we were hit with the bad news. Although the police new the man was guilty, the law requires physical evidence of a sexual crime committed by the person, or  a witness to the crime. In the case against this man there were neither. There isn’t a judge in the land that will convict a man of this crime without some kind of physical evidence or witness.
Some months later we were visited by the lead investigator that handled the case of my daughter and she told us that as we were speaking, the man who did this to my daughter, was being picked up by the police. This man had evidentially taken videos of his actions with my daughter and decided to hide them on his office computer at work. His employer had found these videos and handed them over to the police. The man was charged with his crime spent a week in jail and was sent home awaiting his trial.
His wife and children had left him, and he was left alone in his house. To avoid the embarrassment of a trial he taped up all the windows and doors and turned on the gas, after a while he ignited the gas and as a result there was a massive explosion. The explosion caused massive damage to his house and the 2 adjoining houses. As if it were meant to be, he survived the explosion with a few burns and massive bruising over his body.
He was charged with causing an explosion that ruined three houses, and bringing countless people in danger, Because his actions were a result of his being charged with sexual rape of a miner, the police decided to bring both these indictments into one trial before one judge. He was found guilty of all charges against him. Because the man tried to commit suicide, the judge found him to be unstable and orders that he be sent to a psychiatric institution for a period of 2 years. After 2 years the man is once again a free man.
Although I agree with the judge that the man may have been mental unstable at the time he tried to commit suicide, I also believe that while he was interacting with my daughter, he knew it was wrong and he could go to prison for it. He decide to do it anyway. If the two cases were tried separately, then I am convinced that he would have, in conjunction with 2 years psychiatric  treatment, also have received jail time.
