I have seen some bad things in a full lifetime. I witnessed in full technicolor a stabbing, I have been robbed at gun point, watched a number of horrific accidents, participated in an intervention, performed the heimlich maneuver to save a friend’s life, and I have worked in some challenging environments. . .
But I don’t think I have ever seen something as horrific as the film clip of this Russian child smoking. The idea of an innocent baby being force fed a cigarette, in what appears to be an impoverished setting, really got to me !
So please let me share with you the good news. We don’t have to allow this sort of tragedy to go unanswered in our lifetime. The following is a list of watchdog agencies and charities-please consider contributing as you see fit:
1. Child Molestation Research and Prevention Institute: www.childmolestationprevention.org
2. Save the Children: www.savethechildren.org
3.Child Abuse Prevention: www.child-abuse.com
Please consider giving to one of these organizations or to one of your choosing. . .
