Call to Action Ladies!!!!

Did you catch the Oprah show yesterday? Well by chance I did and boy was I surprised by a few things.

It was about child pornography and child rape, yes rape, on the internet. The statistics blew me away. According to law enforcement, the problem is rampant and the police are having a really hard time catching these people not because they can't find them, but because they lack the resources to apprehend the crazy numbers of them.

The police have to go home each night knowing that the children they saw on the internet will have to go another day of torture because they just can't get to their case.

These child porno people are sickos and need to be stopped. ASAP.

Here's what you can do.

We can make a difference by contacting our Senators before they convene again Sept. 26th. They will be deciding on important issues such as this one and if you agree that our children can benefit from these predators getting caught and stopped, take the time and email, call and/or write to your senator. BE HEARD LADIES!

Oprah makes it super easy for us!

Go to Oprah's website http://www.oprah.com click on "Child Predators: How Bad Is It?". Then click on "Help pass the Protect Our Children Act" line. Just follow the directions.

If you have any questions, let me know and I'll help you email your senator. The show made me ill, but I'm thankful that I saw it and did something about it. You can too.

Your voice matters. Do it for all the children in your life.

I started to watch that show the other night (sometimes we can get oprah in at night on our rabbit ears!) and I had to change it. The statistics she was sharing made me feel sick.

Thanks for informing all of us!

Hey, your welcome. It's not pretty. The best part of the whole thing was that I could actually DO something about it. I appreciate your encouragement as always!

I followed the link and wrote to my senator!

I think this is so important! I saw parts of the show. Like you, it made me ill. I posted the information on myspace as a bulletin to try to get more people to help. Hopefully, they will.

Thanks to everyone that contacted their senators!

FYI... Sen. Mel Martinez emailed me back and said he will support the Protect Our Children Act. Good to know!
