We forgot our priorities

You see in the old days when Ozzie and Harriet - or for those too young- the fifties, When Mom stayed home, an important part of that was the quality time with our children and the constant being able to model and teach understanding of feelings and compassion.  That is what Mom's were so wonderfully known for, being able to give their their children love, compassion, being there to teach the child how to give that to their siblings and other children , explain why they feel the way they do and to understand why others are feeling or behaving as they do. Good Mom's were naturals, guiding their children along the way teaching life skills needed to grow up someday to be mature adults that can live in society as a fully functioning healthy human being that cares and gives to their community.  The world changed and became more rushed , stressed and no time for anything most tragically our children, where else would they learn those most important traits in life?  ( I'm not saying we need to go back to all mom's at home , I never was able to do that emotionally! I'm not saying all mom's were so loving-LOL some were evil, probable because they were stuck at home :)  )

Schools teach Reading , Writing , Math and Science.  Parents were meant to RAISE their children guide them, teach them life skills and how to be social , have manners, be tolerable, considerate, compassionate, not just provide the roof , food and STUFF.

 As you all know , my 24 year old Cassandra , "Soleil Radieux"   was murdered April 17, 2015.  Next week I find out if the trial is finally happening in March , which will be just one month short of her two year mark of them murdering her.   Today, through our POMC site,  I got a message from a friend of a Mom of another 24 year old murdered here in Las Vegas (strangled in her own home and her 3 yr old left alone with her dead body). Reaching out to us for resources to help her friend.    I also work in detox house where only 10 percent of the clients have a chance of staying off drugs after they leave.  My life seems filled with hopelessness yet I see hope still surrounding me.  

I Pray for everyone to find a way to start raising a new generation of kids, where we are not forgetting so many out in the cold and they don't get dropped through the cracks - never learning about how to deal with their own feelings and develop compassion!!!!  Maybe we need to teach America itself the BALANCE of work / life and then parents how to deal with their own feelings first? The most important part is remembering that if we bring a child into this world then please be dedicated to that child and make that child your priority! Being a parent is a selfless life, find the Balance you need to be able to give that beautiful soul your quality time and teach them how and why they are so unique and special!!!! 

Some of you may give up or feel hopeless because you think you can't change the whole world and this whole world is messed up!!!  Not true on either case, Each person can change the world by NOT CONFORMING to the world and BEING the change you wish to see happen!  

Peace, Love and Sunshine Always
