I took gymnastic lessons along with Mary Lou Retton at Aerial Port long before the Olympics. You could never tell it now...I've baked too many brownies, and chocolate chip cookies, pizza, and this morning pancakes, and french toast...You know where this leads. :)
No children should be put into ADULT jails and prisons amongst ADULT violent offenders and sexual preditors.
What Gives Me Hope
Others who are advocating to keep children from being treated as adults they are not.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
Release the children from U.S jails and prisons and place them into a counseling program to recover from the trauma they have suffered.
What/who changed my life and why
8 year old CRR of St. Johns, AZ (November 2008) was arrested and charged as an adult for two counts of premeditated murder, held for 4 months in ISOLATION at the detention center, handcuffed and leg shackled to attend court proceedings, visited his mother through glass wearing oversized jail clothes. He had no access to a grief counselor this entire time even though he was the one who found his father and another man shot to death and ran for help. Those.....in Apache County, AZ bullied him into signing a plea deal then locked him away for an undetermined amount of time in an "inpatient treatment facility" when previous to Nov 5th he had no disciplinary record, not even at school and was thought of as a well behaved adjusted, normal child. The lack of enough gun powder on his clothing proved he is innocent. He lost his innocense that day. Not only by coming upon a gruesome crime scene but finding out the police and other adults are not always the superheroes. CR...we believe in you!
Glad you liked the comments below. Not hard when you are ready to learn I can send some instructions. My "baby" is 25 and he has been away mostly since 18. So with lump in my throat I had to adjust. We get to have them in our lives in a different way, we teach them to fly, but when they fly it still is not easy. Good luck on that and his future journey, I'm sure he'll do fine, it is us that is the question.......lol

We've been seeing what you wanted, got us cornered right now. Fallen asleep from our vanity, might cost us our lives. From the nightmare we've created,
I want to be awakened somehow. Is this the ending of what we've begun? Will we remember what we've done wrong? It's all coming down right now
From the nightmare we've created. I want to be awakened somehow. From the Hell that we're in. All we are is fading away
THANK YOU FOR THE GREEN STAR.....This is Bolivia. The Pujllay is a historical dance from the area of ââYampara (indigenous people). Pujllay means to play or dance. The unique shoe is called cascabeles and has a large bell on the back to go along with the music. So add some dance or play into your life every day.
