  1. Children Who Didn’t Have to Die –

    While Christmas is a wonderful time for most children, for some it is a time of anxiety, stress or even physical pain. Some will not know the joys of this festive season. There has, in fact, been little joy in the short time they spent on this earth before they died.

    In recent years, there have been numerous stories in newspapers around the country about the failures of the departments of Family Services and Social Services to do their respective jobs of monitoring and assisting children in dangerous situations. These stories are a step in the right direction, but one wonders if perhaps they came too late. All the outrage in the world can’t resurrect a dead child.
    Too many children have died as a result of wrong decisions by CPS. With power comes responsibility and accountability, which most officials ignore. A child welfare system so overwhelmed with children who don’t need to be in foster care,the less time they have to find children in real danger.

    It’s the end of the year a great time to remember those less fortunate than us. Let’s NOT allow these precious children’s death to be in vain – in the news one day, forgotten the next.

    It’s the season of giving….. please be a voice for good, a voice for the voiceless, a voice for change.
