Chronicles Of Crises In Our Communities

By:
Chronicles-logo

I am no expert, nor do I aspire to be one; what I want is to raise my children with the awareness of the dangers that lurk among people, in families, and mostly within our community. And I believe the following to be essential requirements for all caring, responsible adults and parents:

· We must stand up for the protection of children, regardless of the outcome. · We must stand against molesters and their destructive behaviors. · We must call out those people who harbor these molesters. · We must go a step further and publicly reprimand and warn the public of, these predators. · Yes, molesters in our communities may fall under the category of husbands, fathers, sons, brothers, uncles, etc. This does not give us the right to look the other way. · These predators must be removed from our communities and we must be there for their families who did nothing wrong – only the molester did. · We must listen to our children. · We must be there for our children. · We must talk to our children. · We must notify the local police and get the vile offender off the street.

I know there are those who will voice strong opposition to this, and others who will take this opportunity to ridicule our community. My intention is to start an honest discussion so that we as a community can deal with this, instead of just sweeping it under the rug. Most of all, I want to protect my children as well as all children.

My Jewish star was battered, indeed it was a wreck
But I picked it up anyway and put it around my neck

But just the same to me it is still very beautiful.
