    i am simply amazed you are this naive.....you wanna feel sorry for the kids...well the kids in the mines have it a lot better than the little boys forced to go fight in wars.....that still happens....people still kill girl babies since they are of no value....people kill their women like you would kill a spider....look at muslims and the honor killings....i could go on and on but it would just be depressing....

    No, bones, I am not 'this' naive... and I know that a lot of even worse things are still happening around the world - however, I think I'm still free to feel outraged by every single one of them... without others calling me 'naive'. But thanks for being so thoughtful...

    always here to help....

    children have no power...no voice....even in this country where we claim to value children...everyone is upset over the death of the king of pedofiles....

    btw there is nothing wrong with being naive....why would one truly wish to see the world the way it really is?

    Because they want to cheer down, perhaps?

    Hell, hell is for children.

    then toss into the mix...these children are mining and dying over rocks that should be bascially worthless.....what makes diamonds costly....de beers...there is no shortage of diamonds..they can now be manufactored or reproduced..almost a cloning....no real reason for "blood" diamonds to still exist...but women of fashion have to have this allusion about a large diamond being a status of how much you are loved....de beers is very talented in their marketing....years when they have a surplus of smaller diamonds you get something like the "journey" necklace...going from a med diamond to a series of smaller ones....

    kobe gave his wife a huge ass purple diamond...all was forgiven....what is it about women and diamonds....? ... o its marketing....if he loves you he will spend 2 months gross...not net...but gross salary on your diamond...what the fuck....1/6 of your yearly income?
