Not taking action is taking action.

“Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.” ~ Dr. Martin Luther King

I have a dream, I dream of a country that outlaws violence towards children by people charged with loving and protecting them. I dream of a country that learns from their children how to love and how to enjoy life. I dream of a nation that demands as much protection in its laws for it's young, our most vulnerable, as it does for it's pets at a minimum.

America's shame. In none of our state's is it illegal to hit a child.

I have a dream...Every state makes it illegal to hit a child.
