Concrete Angel

Yesterday I posted a video over on the Elijah Hael & The Last Judgement Facebook page, called “Concrete Angel” by Martina McBride.

In this morning’s news, sadly, a headline read, 'Pogo stick death' now suspicious A HOMICIDE investigation has been launched into the death of a seven-year-old boy in Sydney's south.'

The boy's body was found by paramedics at his family's home in Mulga Road, Oatley, about 6.15am yesterday after reports he had injured himself inside the property.

Police were initially investigating reports that the boy had fallen off a pogo stick the day earlier, injured his head and was later put to bed, his family waking the next morning to discover him unresponsive.

But officers are now treating the incident as suspicious, with the Homicide Squad called in to investigate.

It is understood that the family are known to the Department of Family and Community Services.

A report is being prepared for the Coroner following a post mortem examination to be carried out today.

The song, and video clip by Martina McBride sums it up.

While I do believe in something beyond this life, if I didn’t, I would still hope there is something for the children who are treated this way.  A world better than they were dealt.
