“Neverland”

If you haven’t discovered “Endeavour” (check your PBS station; season 1 is on Netflix), please do so. The episodes are excellent and very well written; I usually watch them multiple times.

Tonight’s episode was heart-wrenching. With a title like “Neverland” I should’ve known that it would be about orphans, child-abuse, and the far-reaching consequences of corruption and deviance.  Once it became clear what was happening and who was at fault, I felt so sad and so furious.

Yes, I know it’s fiction. Yes, you should know that it’s also a reality for 40 million children each year. How dare we allow this tragedy to continue–it is absolutely unforgivable.
