...remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering. Hebrews 13:3
Remembering Timothy: STOP TORTURE
STOP Punitive RESTRAINT USE,
STOP Punitive SEGREGATION " Stop Torture "
If each man or woman could understand that every other human life ....
.... is as full of sorrows,
..... or joys,
...... or base temptations,
...... of heartaches,
...... and of remorse as his own, ........ how much kinder,
how much gentler he would be.
IF… parents had to give up custody of their children for them to receive treatment for cancer...If people with heart disease ended up on the streets or in prisons because they couldn't get help...If businesses lost billions of dollars due to avian flu...If 30,000 people died each year due to airplane accidents...
This nation would demand action. When it comes to mental health disorders, there are no "ifs." Loss of child custody, homelessness, incarceration, lost productivity, and an epidemic of suicide are realities in communities across the country. Mental health is fundamental to overall health and research confirms the link between mind and body and demonstrates that mental illnesses are treatable when individuals have access to appropriate services.
Over 3,000 individuals and 200 organizations have already called for action by signing onto Mental Health America’s national petition drive. This petition was successfully submitted.
We can make a Difference. God Bless,
Our Wish For You:
May God bless you with discomfort at easy answers, half-truths and superficial relationships, so that you will live deep in your heart.
May God bless you with anger at injustice, oppression and exploitation of people and the earth, so that you will work for justice, equity and peace.
May God bless you with tears to shed for those who suffer so you will reach out your hands to comfort them and change their pain to joy.
And may God bless you with the foolishness to think that you can make a difference in the world, so that you will do the things others say cannot be done.
When tomorrow starts without me,
and I'm not there to see, If the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me;
I wish so much you wouldn't cry the way you did that day, when you found out, that they let me Die
I know how much you love me Mom, as much as I love you, And each time that you think of me, Timmy Joe
I know you'll miss me too;
But when tomorrow starts without me,
Please try to understand, that an angel came and called my name And took me by the hand
