Morals of the Clone Wars 3.4: Sphere of Influence

Moral: “A child stolen is a lost hope.”

Too many children today are being kidnapped or sold into prostitution. Human Trafficking is a terrible savage act that should not be happening today. Yet it is. Many are standing up to fight against those who are violating our children in this way. Much has yet to be done. (Visit humantrafficking.org or trafficfree.org for more info.)

I wonder how often we think of the less obvious ways are children are stolen from us. Possibly from the “need” for both parents to be working, so children spend their days being raised by day care providers. Possibly through trying to give them everything they ask for instead of teaching them contentment. Possibly through too much television and video games. Possibly through too much “hands-off” parenting, letting children do as they desire rather than having a strong relationship with them. Perhaps it is through a lack of community and too many single parents trying to do it all on their own.

There are many ways in which our children are stolen from us, and all too often we have let it happen. But it’s never too late. We must not let our children be stolen from us. There is always hope, as long as there are people willing to care, love and fight for the sake of our children and their future.
