Welcome to My World
I also have many CAUSES that I believe in and I belong to several organizations on the internet that believe in the same things I do. I also have TeddyBears, Cyber-Pets, *ANGELS*, and some poetry..
My favorite pastime is Boating, Sea-Dooing and anything related to the River, which I display briefly within my pages.
I work with some groups in my own community
(ie. "Battered Women and Children Org.")...
When I am NOT working I spend hours on the internet researching and passing along information.
If you don't have time to view all my pages
I implore you to at least take time
to read this page regarding Childrens Pictures on Web Pages.
Many Parents Can't Describe Their Kids By ABCNEWS.com
The survey, released to mark the 16th anniversary of National Missing Children's Day, found that 34 percent of parents could not recall these vital statistics for all their children.
While the numbers show most parents - 66 percent - do know these statistics, those who helped conduct the survey say those numbers need to improve. The FBI (news - web sites) counts 2,100 new missing-children reports every day, which are solved more easily when parents can provide this descriptive information.
"This is a both reminder and a call for awareness for parents," said an investigator who helped conduct the survey. "It's shocking how many parents admit they don't know their children's height, weight and eye color or have a recent picture of their kids. That's something most parents don't even like to admit. The survey is meant to encourage parents to know their children's statistics. So many parents don't even know what to do or how to prepare for their child's disappearance."

In most states the penalty for an adult who rapes a child is twenty years plus --
UNLESS that adult happens to be related to the child, in which case the maximum sentence is PROBATION.
There is legislation now pending in Congress to change all this.
IF YOU CARE, ACT!
Here is a partial quote written by Andrew Vachss, the child abuse expert and author:
"Congressman Ney's courageous legislation offers not just hope for child victims, but for our society. When a child is violated, it is an offense against everything good in America. It is time to eliminate distinctions between crimes against one's "own" children and crimes against "other" children. No "parental right" includes a safe harbor for sex offenders. This legislation is a litmus test for every elected official. Support is expected. And silence should not be tolerated."
On Friday, December 1st, 2000, a worldwide media event
was held to raise awareness for abused children.
