Please Help Our Children!

I was watching an Oprah show this morning that I had recorded this week
I'm not sure which day it aired but it shook me to the core.
It was on child predators & pornography.
The show hit a nerve in me as well as millions of others I'm sure.

Hundreds of thousands of children are victims of sexual abuse each year. 
Due to the sheer lack of resources, law enforcement is unable to follow up on the majority of leads they have.

The "PROTECT Our Children Act" 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.

We as mother, sister, daughter etc. need to make a stand & we need to write, call & email our Senators letting them know that they need to Pass Senate Bill 1738- The PROTECT Our Children Act!

I have already emailed my senators letting them know my stand on this issue please join me in PROTECTING our children & all children of our world.

Please Go HERE for more information & how to get ahold of your Senators.
Please lets not let our children & our children's children down.
This bill needs to be passed.

We only have until Sept 26th of this year to let ourselves be heard so Please don't procrastinate this one or assume that someone else will do it.

To make a change we all need to be heard.

I heard Oprah mention it on today's show, too. Call your congressman! E-mail him/her, too; the more pressure the politicians get, the better chance the bill has of becoming law!

I heard all about this and it made me sick. I didn't get to see the show and I wasn't sure how to go about sending a letter to the senator but I will go to Opera's website and figure it out now. Thanks for posting about this. It is so disturbing!
