DRAMA FOR REFORM
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!
