I have read, and reread Nicholas Kristof's column about rape. He has been traveling in Africa. His facts are difficult to fathom. Rape. Of children. Of toddlers. A 2 and-a-half month old infant who died of her internal injuries. What man would do this? What others condone it? We are not civilized if such atrocity exists. This is not beastiality. Only the human male with his so-called superior intelligence is capable of such depravity. How do you help these young victims? A baby might be born by some of the older girls. what will those new mothers tell their children? How will that violent beginning end?
