Take it to the people that need it

I am a humorist, usually. This is one of the exceptions.

While you are reading this, at least one woman, someplace is incapacitated because her husband/boyfriend thought that women are property and beat the hell out of her because she did something he didn't like, up to and including something as simple as smile at the wrong time. How many children go to the doctor because according to them, they fell down or ran into a door, when the reality is that mom or day decided they made good objects upon which to vent their rage? How many young ladies, under the age of ten, have replaced their mother/girlfriend as a sex toy?

Is that man on the curb there because he wants to be? He is begging for money for food, yet you know it's going to alcohol. Are you going to ignore him? Or are you going to stop and talk to him to find out the real reason he's in the condition he's in. You will probably be very surprised.

This is only part of what we are trying work on. I for one am tired of seeing all the abuse and neglect. I know we can do something. No, we HAVE to do something. Join me, make a difference. The cover letter for WNGS is below. There are email address'es to contact us if you are willing to quit being a couch potato and help. Let George do it? We are George!! Help with us. Are you part of the problem? Or are you willing to help find the solution?

Ron, as the mother of not one, but two daughters who either are or were in abusive relationships, I know too well the heartbreak and fear of abuse.
You all are doing a great job, and you have my support however and whenever you need it.

I can very much appreciate the sentiments of your group and your intention is great -as is the need in the areas listed.

However, I'm, right now, a bit confused as to how you plan to actually help the people in need. Will this be just by posting here, writing articles, having fund raising activities, etc.?

A little more information as to how you plan to put this idea into actual actions is all I'm saying there.

How do you want those of us who feel as you do about these people(s), situations, etc., to respond? What is it you want folks to actually do, other than just try in some way, where ever possible, to educate others as to the needs?
