...On A Personal Note

On a more personal note, not so connected to the world of politics:

With the release of Rachel Proctor's new single, "Me and Emily," I feel inclined to say something. I'm not an advocate, I'm not a spokesperson, and I'm surely not a role model, but I have an obligation to myself to not let this one go by without a thought. "Me and Emily" joins a growing list of country and pop songs that address the issue of child abuse.

I have no intention of remarking on the issue, but I wanted to post a few websites that deal with the epidemic in our society. And if anyone has knowledge of these occurences, these websites may offer assistance.

The Child Safety Institute

Childhelp USA

Thanks for letting me get on my soapbox for a moment. It was just one of those things nagging at me tonight.
