Thank you for the invite.I believe every child should have unconditional love and support! Not to mention food ,clothing,shelter,their home a safe haven.Their school a place of learning where each and every child has a nutrtious meal each day.And doesn't have to worry about being shot or having to avoid drug dealers on their way home. I am somewhat passionate about this and I know my comment may appear naive,but Imagine! Isn't that the way it should be!?Safe secure,well educated! Tolerant! Healthy,happy.Not afraid and hungry! And certainly not having to fear abuse or hunger in their own home!

TM...Amen Sister!!! You are absolutely right and your view is not naive! It is hopeful and free of the weight being told it is impossible to have it all.If I got just one wish it would be that everyone could believe in good like you do...The better we do for our children the better they can do for their children and one day the world will be a place where no child has to fear the future...and can truly live.

Thank you Ashley for the invite, you dont know how much this means to me and what I am trying to do at the moment.

Please look at my petition

I weep because it has taken nearly six months to get just 279 signatures for these kids in jail and many do not belong there.

Thank you once again your a STAR

Thank you for joining is truly sad you have worked so hard and only have less then 300 signatures..this will not get lost in the shuffle here! I will put it in the petitions thread and give it..its own thread as is far to important a cause to fall in between the cracks!

I am a Sexual Assualt Victim Activist as well as a strong activist for children.  My philosophy in life is this: "Children do not ask to be created, but are gifts.  You DO NOT get right to ruin a childs life."

Hi Everyone!
I'm Derek, I'm 33 years young, and children are the strength of the world
Ashlyn, it's a privilege to be here! I've sent a link to Light to Unite! to everyone in Care2, because I hadn't heard about it before, and if even 10% of all the members all over the world acted on it, that would make sucha HUGE difference!
Take care, one and all, and I hope to be back in here again soon
Love and hugs,

Hello from the wetlands of Oregon January 15, 2006 9:23 AM

Thank you Karen H. for the invite.

I am a married mother of grown and out of the house twin girls, both in college (self financing) in Connecticut. It has been an incredible struggle to both, but we have strong able woman for daughters.

Children are, they say, mirrors of ourselves, but in a way I disagree. We are guides, boundry givers and takers-away. I think it was Gilbran that said "We are the bow to the arrows" so to speak. We must guide with the firm belief that what we do affects what they do. We must live by example, with a lot of ethics and to impart all the knowledge of the real world to them so they are prepared for that world they are entering.

I know...I am -ing, so I will stop for now.

My profile is a good example of who I am...feel free to see....oh so poetic.

Peace, Jacki

Hi Derek...Welcome!...The Light to Unite link is already in our AIDS thread which is pinned to the frontpage..but thank you for posting it again with such a great cause you really can't post it enough!

You are right Children are the Strength of the World...they are also the it is our job to protect them..and I couldn't think of better people to do it with!

I think this group is a great idea Ashley! Anything I can do just ask.

 [report anonymous abuse]  [ accepted]
 January 15, 2006 3:34 PM

Hello and Welcome Jacki!...Strong and Able women sounds like the best thing a woman could be and I think I know where your daughters get it!

It's not -ing if you are right...and you are! best thing we can do for our children is treat the world and the people on it with respect...because if we don't who will teach them too?...

If we could be just a little more caring to everything and everyone around us it would have a snowball affect..and make a truly great tomorrow.

Hello.  My name is Adam. I am just trying to spread the word about this site because it is probably the easiest free opportunity I have seen to make a real difference. When you make it your home page, one meal a day is donated to a hungry child.  Please help spread the word.
