As a child, walking down the street where I lived I remember sharing with my friend that I heard someone found a baby in the trash can. I used to check the garbage cans to see if someone threw one away on my street on the walk between our two houses. It was from 121 to 151, a short distance. I never did find a baby in the garbage on that block, but I knew in my heart if I ever did, I would be the one to make the difference.
I am learning so much in my research. In Haiti special needs children are believed to be cursed. The singer in this band is helping the Haitian government to re write the country's cultural narrative. After 17 plus years of singing this amazing music, he is helping the orphans with special needs. This Night to Shine event is like peeling the layers of an onion to see the history, but yet at the same time it's a movement that I am already a part of which is helping others to see why we do not curse adults and children who are survivors of child abuse and domestic abuse. This curse is right in Florida and I cannot speak of other states, but forgiveness is much more powerful than creating extensive false reports robbing children who do have caring parents of their children. Imagine if the foster care system was an orphanage in Florida, how many children are we talking about?
I fully support this work in Haiti and the missionary work being done. I just can't help but let the world know, similar difficulties are happening right in Florida's justice system
I was asked by my 8 year old son, "If you could have a trophy, what would it be for?" and I said, "For being the voice for the children." I have aligned myself with a ministry of others who are the voice for the children.
Simon Sinek speaks of surrounding yourself with people who believe like you believe. I am so grateful that after climbing a mountain and running down, I have found another tribe who believes like I do.
If I am going to fight for my own son, I am going to speak up for the other children who have been harassed and removed from their own home. I have so much credibility and experience in my 21 year curriculum vitae which they took from me using computer invasion but guess what you can't take away the experiences and the victories I have had because God uses me personally to move mountains. That's what happens with movements. You create the change that is needed. Rocking out today with Audio Adrenaline and so grateful for them I want to strap on a pair of roller blades and rollerblade on the trail and at the park. That's home to me.
Making the most of our life on earth includes surrounding ourselves with positive energy, positive relationships, places and when we are striving to maintain at our best, that's often when our "enemies" will try to destroy us. John 10:10
