Remembering Adrian Jones

Adrian Alexander Jones is widely known as the 7 year old boy whose parents fed him to pigs. He was so much more than that and deserves to be remembered for who he was, not what happened to him. The the immense strength and bravery he showed in his short 7 years was more than any superhero could ever have. He used his little voice repeatedly to tell adults he was being mentally abused, beaten, tortured and starved even though each time he told, it would get worse. Each plea for help was ignored by doctors, social workers, police officers, juvenile officers and therapists in the states of Kansas & Missouri. Adrian essentially starved to death alone, emaciated and naked, taped to a lawn chair inside a shower where he was being held for months, in the basement of their family home. When his Father and Step-Mother could no longer stand the smell of his little body, they fed him to pigs.

Reading Adrian’s Story is hard and it hurts that we can’t save him but its so important to know just some of what what this little boy went through. Adrian has sparked a fire in thousands of people across the world to change laws and help other children because of our love for him. We, as a society, absolutely failed Adrian like we fail so many children every day. We need to fight to make sure Adrian’s Law passes the senate this time, to help make sure this doesn’t happen to any other child.
