As most of you will of heard be in via newspaper, TV, Internet or radio, it will be the 20th anniversary tomorrow of James Bulgers horrific and brutal death.
Weather young or old, the name James Bulger will be imprinted in your mind. The 2 year old was taken whilst shopping with his mother and brutally murdered by 2 then ten year old boys.
I wont say anymore about his killing as im sure you will already no how awful it was.
20 years on, and i believe James family still have not had justice for what happened to there son. The scum bag killers, im sorry that's what they are, and that's putting it politely, both have new lives, new identity's, and are both aloud to have lives when they so brutally took James. How is this fair?
James mother has been doing alot of interviews on TV and radio and i just cant imagine the pain she and her family go through every minute of the day knowing the scum responsible of killing her son, her baby, are out living there lives.
Each time i see James image, my heart stops for a moment, my blood runs cold thinking about it all. I find myself holding Harry close, hes the same age as James was. James has a similar look to Gareth's little brother, same colour hair. James birthday is the same date at Gareth's, and i think, he should be doing all the same things Gareth is, but he wasn't given the chance. All these things run through my mind, something needs to be done to bring James and his family some justice.
As a mother, well as a human being, when i think about the 'things' that did this to this boy, i think they deserve nothing but pain and suffering for the rest of there lives, and still then that would be too good. I'm not sure where i stand on the death penalty as a whole, but in this case, and any case where a innocent child's been killed, id quite easily administer the drug myself. The world doesn't need such vile things wondering the streets.
If you have a spare minute, could you pop over and follow the twitter account run by the James Bulger Memorial Trust @Jbmt1 over there there is also a epetition you can sign to help get #JusticeForJames
And dont forget to give your little ones an extra big cuddle as i will be doing with Harry.
