Protect Our Children!

It's time to get on the wagon, ladies and gents - - GO HERE!

Can't say I have time to sit and watch Oprah often, but since I'm sick and pregnant, I did today, because this one caught my eye.

As a victim of sexual abuse, I cannot express how important Senate Bill 1738 is. This bill will provide the funding for the correct officials to go after the millions of sexual predators that allude us.

My abuser, I knew. Most likely, your child would, too. Help keep your children safe and help push this through.

Teach your children about "stranger danger" but don't forget almost all of these "strangers" are family members, teachers, coaches, and family friends. Teach your children about "good touch, bad touch". Be involved, be aware, and be on top of what is going on in your child's life. I can't be reminded enough.

Take the time, get involved. I just did.

I teach 1st grade... it's AMAZING how many "at risk" kids I have that need more services because someone in thier short little lives has hurt them!!!

I am so glad you posted this. The election? The economic crash? The war? Nothing is more important this week than Senate Bill 1738 for our country.

Hey Misty,

First, I haven't read blogs for a while and I haven't posted in even longer. Just not finding the free time, but I do like to look in on you from time to time - so here I am and I just wanted ya to know that I think of you, hope you have a happy healthy baby (and I hope you feel better too!)

Second, I DID write to both of m representatives here in California and they both REPLIED! They voted for this bill and I PRAY that is passed!!

Take care of yourself and your lovely family!
