Please Remember The Greatest Will

Please Remember The Greatest Will

After I left my job as an investigator, I promised to do something that would help to bring encouragement to families dealing with child abuse. I’ve always supported the idea of keeping children within the family if possible and this book really shows how one family risked it all to do that. I would love for you to read it if you find the time, but more importantly, I would love for you to understand the issue at hand.

There are so many children in the foster care system and many of those children turn out to be victims of street life. Many of the children run and we are now finding that they are also often pursued by sex traffickers. Children in the system are at a much higher risk of being recruited into that lifestyle due to them not having a way out of the system. It is extremely hard to place teens and if that teen has any mental health issues, it’s even harder.

If anything, I want to bring awareness to the fear of being separated through the eyes of a child and how certain areas remove without trying to keep the family together. My ex boss stated that she would purposely stay away from PD’s that wanted to try to keep the children in PCSP homes which is a placement option with family members or people close to that family. Don’t get me wrong, there are times when the family isn’t an option. However, if they can prove to be good, protective, and stable for these children, they should be viewed as an option. My ex boss would staff with removal happy PD’s and I found that alarming. She actually bragged about being the removal queen and staying away from PCSP’s which meant she was moving towards the state most of the time instead on trying to check family members out.

I had many arguments with people about doing the right thing instead of the easy thing. We really need to change the system and make sure all efforts are being made to keep children within their family units if the family proves to be safe. Write to your local leaders and talk to them about reporting, updated laws, and the need for new laws while dealing with social services. Nobody should be victimized twice.

George Bush Gives Food To Shocked Furloughed Workers

If you look closely at the picture you can see sadness on some of their faces. Can you even imagine how it feels to know that your family’s life is being put in the balance because your leaders can’t get it together? We are talking about the people who won their states because they promised to look after their people.

This is America and we are acting like some third world country that some of these guys served in. How can anyone in congress sleep at night? How can Trump sleep at night knowing that their inability to get along is causing so many families pain. Our workers are being oppressed and having it sugar coated by being told they will get funds at a later date.

We have important updates being put off due to the shutdown. Earlier I received this message because I signed up for updates. Don’t ask why, just know that when a natural disaster happens, I plan to know.


“Recent Observations: Cascade Range volcanoes remained at background activity levels throughout the week. During the lapse in appropriations, CVO continues to maintain networks and issue updates and notifications of volcanic activity. Volcano monitoring data will continue to available on the CVO website. Some website content will not be updated and information may become outdated. More information about the partial government shutdown is available at https://www.doi.gov/shutdown. ” This email is from the U.S. Geological Survey.

Yellowstone

These are the workers who monitor volcanoes and earthquakes. They monitor Yellowstone National Park which happens to be a super-volcano. With all the movement under Yellowstone and NASA trying to drill holes in it to cool it down, I would think that they need to have someone on it day and night. These are important jobs being held up, such as Homeland Security. Do they not understand that the average person doesn’t have 300000 waiting in their accounts to ward off bills?

Our leaders are not leading.
