The Protect Our Children Act

I just wrote my senator!!! Why? I'm glad you asked. To request the pass senate Bill 1738--the Protect Our Children Act. I don't know if you watched Oprah yesterday, but within the first 5 minutes of the show I was sobbing. I was overwhelmed and disgusted with the wickedness of this world. I could only watch a few minutes before having to turn it off. I thought to myself, "what can I do?" The only thing that came was to make my home a light. A refuge. So when my kids learn and see what I see, they know there is safety and peace that exists too and teach them to pass it on. I did watch the rest and fortunately found out there is something else I can do and you can to. Write your senator. Seriously, it took me 2 minutes. Super easy. Here is the link all ready for you along with a pre-written letter, if you choose to use it. If passed this bill will:
  • Authorize over $320 million over the next five years in desperately needed funding for law enforcement to investigate child exploitation.
  • Mandate that child rescue be a top priority for law enforcement receiving federal funding.
  • Allocate funds for high-tech computer software that can track down Internet predators.
Here is the link to yesterday's show if you want to find out more. So thanks Oprah, for bringing this up. Now, if you could only make the connection between this and many other of the things you support, or choose to ignore because its not popular, we'll really be getting somewhere. P.S. I don't know if this worth mentioning and it's been something I've been guilty of in the past...let's just say I'm never, EVER putting any sort of slightly n@k3d photos of my children, no matter how cute or how young, on the Internet ever again.


  1. I did see it! But Derek and I both had to turn it off within minutes. Too hard to watch! Way to go Jasmine!

  2. i didnt see it, but thanks for the link, ill be sure to do it. that stuff depresses me for days.

  3. Thanks for the info. I started it as well but was too disgusted to keep it on. I will go write my senator. This type of stuff makes me so angry. I had to start singing primary songs to get it out of my head and calm down. I really wish those evil people could be zapped to dust.

  4. Several years ago a stranger was taking pix at a play ground, pretty innocent but the spirit said go away, so we did (kids were bummed).
    Another time at a motel, I didn't like the way a guy was watching all the kids. We left (again kids bummed) and I told the manager. I was disgusted with the lack of response from her.
    How to people parent without the spirit?

  5. I am with you on the pics. I thought about having Beastie be a baby model (because she's so gorgeous, of course!), but then thought about all of the diseased and disgusting people out there and couldn't do it.

    I don't get it. I am with the people who are clamoring for the death penalty with people who exploit children.
