Justice for Living Children
This is for everyone who is upset about the CAYLEE ANTHONY case.
That case is over. Our jury system has decided, rightly or wrongly, and it is a system we should prefer since I, for one, do not wish to live in a police state. I hope you feel the same way, too. We seem to have forgotten that many other murders, including that of children by their parents, occurred during the time since this crime was committed.
But if you feel bad for hurt kids, it is time for you to step up.
There are children out there now, ALIVE, who need your help. Children who have been kicked out of their homes for being gay. Children who have been raped and abused by their parents and protectors. Children dumped on the road for simply being a nuisance. Children who have run away because they simply could not take it any more.
These children aren't always pretty and they aren't always sweet. But they goddamn sure could use your help.
Give to The Trevor Project or to the Ali Forney Center. Or find a children's home or charity in your town and give. No money to give? Then donate time and work. GET OFF YOUR COMPLACENT BUTTS AND HELP THE CHILDREN WHO SUFFER TODAY.
Leaving your porch light on will help no one. DOING SOMETHING WILL.
