A Day to Ponder Families and Relationships

On a day in the US when we had the worst mass shooting in our history, it’s a good time to reflect on the importance of the people in our lives.  This young woman, to her great credit, was able to take a horrific, long term, governmentally-funded atrocity and offer hope to millions of other children around the world.  Not many 17 year olds have the courage and verbal skills to address their nation’s parliament on a personal matter and I it would be just as rare, if not more so, here in the US.  In my own case I had to wait 14 years, not just nine, to achieve equal custody, but in my case I was merely treated like a criminal and didn’t actually become one like the father in this case.
