Itís been a dreadful past week!! 3 children have gone missing in my surrounding communities. One of the children is a colleague of mineís child. His 13 year old daughter was last seen by her friends on 22 January 2010, she was physically dragged and beaten into a car. He searched everywhere, even went to the mortuary twice to identify bodies. Yesterday the police found her in a very bad shape and she was raped. This is our scary reality, children just disappear and get hurt!

Todayís photo is dedicated to all the children in SA, I just wish I could protect them all

A terrible reality for your country and indeed many others throughout this sorry world. As a photojournalism image this works so well, the children all looking away apart from the one staring at you ..... as a comment on society it is a terrible indictment on the "human" race .... Thanks for sharing Colin

A harrowing story - I can remember my Mother saying "what is the world coming to" and here we are still saying the same thing. It seems there is no safe place for children. Your image is very good.

Did he actually read the terrible and tragic story about these children? "snap"? no way this is a beautifully captured shot, perfectly documented, and mine and most others send to you our heart felt sorrow for these children.. how lucky we are compared!
Please keep posting here your photographs,

oh that is a terrible story - why !!! seems such a silly question to ask - these children in this picture as so young and I expect the older ones look after them the best they can? a terrible situation - Petro you are doing a brilliant if not heartbreaking job
