at this moment...















at this moment, somewhere out there
there is a child fearfully cowering below
the physical blows of an adult caretaker

at this moment, in a home not too far away
there is a child hoping and praying
that tonight they won't be sexually molested

at this moment, someone is realising
just how blessed they truly are
and decide it's time to help a child in need.

is that person you?

That photo is beautiful. I love the pipe cleaner bracelet!

The words are hard to wrap my mind around. Oh, yes, I am truly blessed to have never dealt with this.

"A prayer for the wild at heart, kept in cages."

Blessings to them all.

And, yes, the things I see at work, we are all abundantly blessed to have our healthy children in a safe and loving home...

So blessed.

Thank you for that. How true. As a survivor of physical abuse it's so important to me to help out kids and I appreciate you helping in the cause "for breaking the cycle."

OH, you do know how to make a person pause. And think.
