The soul cannot forgive until it
is restored to wholeness and health.
In the absence of love - how can one forgive?

With an abundance of love, starting with one's self,
forgiveness becomes a viable opportunity.

The National Association to Protect Children

I belong to The National Association to Protect Children - a membership association dedicated to providing political strength and leadership to create tougher laws for the protection of abused children. As a member, I am comforted that I am doing something to support creating safer communities for our nation's kids.

From their Mission Statement:

“There’s an old saying in politics: “Children don’t vote.”

That old saying is supposed to explain why children do not inspire fear and respect among elected leaders. But the real reason children always lose out in the political arena is that adults don't fight for children the way they fight for themselves……

….Like the NRA or the AARP, we know that there is strength in numbers and power in being focused exclusively on a single issue.”

For any one who is interested in helping to create new ways to protect children, this is a very worthy organization.

Check out their recent victories on the right hand side of their "campaigns" page.
