{This has really rattled me}

I still feel physically sick after watching the breaking news tonight on the 8 year girl murdered in the shopping centre at Perth. How tragic is this. My children are 7 and 9 and I couldn't bear to imagine what this family is going through.

I am often saying to my 7 year old daughter not to run around in the shopping mall, she has a tendency to wander to the toy section with out tellimg me and every time she ends up in tears because she is scolded when I get there. The deal is if anyone needs to go to the toilet then we go together and use the disabled toilets, but it easy to get a bit complactent and think they are old enough - you just never know who is around.

This really shook me up tonight  and to think here in Australia things like this can happen

Needless to say I gave my kids an extra big hug tonight, and a really big talk on being in public places.

This is the tragic story and to think this man has been accused before and walked free.
