Third week of chalk on the pavement, Federal Building Security warns John they've tolerated it for three weeks but want him to stop or they may take action. Why not just stop and avoid the potential for arrest?  NonViolent Action in support of our belief in Family Rights.

Like many of you, I'm saturated with Social Media.  So many postings on Facebook, so many websites ... so little time ... what do we click on -- something that sounds different, or dramatic, or useful!

Next week I hope to raise our 'different/dramatic/useful ' level by increasing the number of messages.  Please show up if you can next Friday (June 1st).  I'd enjoy getting to meet folks in person and  I really need one other person to be there as observer as I write:

“Senators Help Us!   We  R Kids”

The Internet makes it easy to talk, but we need to act.  Many believe if we explain the injustice and have documentation and are backed up by scientific facts -- that we'll get our kids back, reform will happen, and all will be well!

Please understand this is a Civil Rights struggle.  For over a hundred years in the segregated South, if you were Black: you sat in the back of the bus, you couldn't eat next to a White person, and you had to use a different bathroom.   How much scientific research and logic did it take to understand that was WRONG?

Also understand there were plenty of good people, model citizens, church going, loving & caring -- that thought that was fine!  What did it take to finally change attitudes?  You can read more details here,  but briefly:  A small minority of Blacks (supported by others) were willing to peacefully and without anger face arrest by violating all those taboos.  They suffered for what they believed in, people saw it in the News, and attitudes changed from within...

WHAT ABOUT US, WHAT CAN WE DO?  They took our kids, but we can't respond by kidnapping or by withholding child support (those actions just confirm the stereotype).   

But walk around peacefully carrying a picture of your kids where they don't want you.   Chalk a message of love  on pavement where they don't like it.  If we can get enough parents  -- it would make different & dramatic  News story.   We need reporters to ask Senators Schumer & Gillibrand why they are not responding -- then it's also useful!
Some people have told me they are worried to even be a spectator as others walk or leave messages with chalk.  Many of you have never participated in any type of public demonstration.  Your knowledge is based on what you see in the news:  rabid crowds, a lot of anger, and the cops arresting everyone in site....  

I've been involved in over 40 of these incidents -- I tell anyone with me to just be silent, don't bother anyone, be well dressed, and be polite (that reduces the anxiety in others).  I never argue with Police or cry about my rights be violated. 

HONESTLY, in almost EVERY case, the Police have gone out of their way to avoid an arrest by issuing warnings or just asking me to stop what I'm doing.  They've never bothered anyone else just watching -- they don't want media attention.

So feel free to show up, especially next Friday.   I can use the Teflon you provide!
