To The Daily Sun,
You can be conservative, liberal or in between, religious, spiritual, agnostic or atheist, of any race or nationality, able bodied or disabled, but if you are breathing, you cannot deny that we need to treat our children better. You can be for or against welfare, guns, war, the government, more regulations, taxes, GMO or higher minimum wage but how can you be against the children? When you see a child being abused and psychologically damaged by any other human being, how can you look away? If we send children into the future without a foundation of security and respect for each other and a
healthy, undamaged brain, how can we ever expect to solve our political, social and economic problems? Our world is full of damaged children now grown, who we have to support, carry, keep and tamp down. How could you not want to deliver our children, intact, into adulthood?
You can change the world, one act of courage at a time. If you see something, dig deep and say something. Find your courage to protect our young. They are ours, not his or hers. Do not look away. The abuse that occurs every day to our young human beings is way out of balance, and still we look away. We say dont get involved. We say its not worth putting yourself through that. We say there is nothing we can do. We say look away and dont disrupt your life. There is a mass culture of looking away and that needs to change, now. I ask you to take a step, any step that feels right to you to help stabilize the lives of our children, and evolve. We can do this. That is my Christmas wish.
