Children Who Never Made It Home (003: KO) A Virtual Cemetery created by: Pinoy Pride
Description: Innocent individual children, teens and adolescents who, before their 18th birthday, either died tragically and senselessly (i.e. child abuse, all forms of homicide, parental neglect, foster care/child welfare agency failure, war and other armed conflicts, bullying or oppression resulting to suicide or outright death, medical malpractice or negligence, religious abuse, miscarriage of justice, preventable accidents and disasters caused directly or indirectly by other people) or went missing and have yet to be found after a period of at least seven years and counting. They were all included regardless of their race, religion, personal beliefs, nationality, civil and socioeconomic status, occupation (except for crime, military, police or gang-related ones) and sexual orientation while they were still living. A good few of them went on to become canonized saints of the Roman Catholic Church where I belong to (e.g. Saint Sicaire, Saint Kizito, Saint Maria Goretti). May the memories of these innocents be never forgotten and their souls forever rest in peace in the arms of Our Dear Lord God. NOTE: This virtual cemetery is a constant work in progress as new names are still being added here. Some of the children here have more than one memorial dedicated to them. Seth Davis and Charlie Hildebrandt are listed as exceptions. Although both survived to adulthood, they either lived in a permanent vegetative state, deprived of reasoning or were rendered physically and mentally helpless for the rest of their lives due to the ill effects of other people's frustrated attempts to take their lives before their 18th birthday.
