Phil Hughes, RIP, and Victims of Rape and Acid Attack

Phil Hughes demise is a sad thing. My Condolences to his family. EXCELLENT article on this, reference at bottom. Even Queen Elizabeth II gets involved in this. Australian govt declares National holiday. Calls him one of great sons. His demise postpones a Whole Cricket match, a Test! BILLIONS involved, with ticket and TV rights.

Phil Hughes died. Are ‘his’ problems Not over? (Except for hell for what wrongs he might have done, but is that not another matter?) His demise has been made into Big news, and bigger bucks. WHEREAS…Victims of Rape and Acid Attack are mere 9 day wonders.

Phil Hughes’ wife and children, if he had them, might have needed support. WHEREAS Victims of Acid Attack and Rape NEED Support.

*******

My Full Sympathies to Phil Hughes’ family. His govt declared a National holiday. Great. BUT WHY DO WE NOT DECLARE SAME over Rape and Acid Attack? Pains of Phil Hughes ended. But DO AGONIES and SHAME of Victims of Acid Attack or Rape EVER END? They Cancelled a Test Match over Phil Hughes. DO THEY EVEN WEAR A BLACK RIBBON When Rape and Acid Attack happen? Phil Hughes’ family must have received much support. But do Victims of Rape and Acid Attack get support even for Medical bills?

  1. Truly horrifying. I’m actually afraid to reblog this because I’m afraid it will give men ideas. I think the men who do this should be dunked in acid and left on a dusty road somewhere, to die alone. But maybe that’s just me. Until there are punishments that are equal to the crimes, nothing will change.

    • Very, Very, Very Well said, my Dear. Punishments have to be equal to the crime, and that is where our Stupid and so-called justice system errs. Thank You. That was a very good comment! 🙂
