Jenny Matlock: I wish I was a master of photoshop... (PKW)

Jenny Matlock: I wish I was a master of photoshop... (PKW)

Please go check this out.. something we all, at some point, need to think about. We see good people get hit by hard times more and more lately!!!!
I do, however, want to point out that there are a lot of people in this country willing to help but it seems like we're the silent minority. I'd like to give a shout out to the ladies of the Junior Service League/Clubs all over the country. They get a bad rap as being snooty party girls but every year make thousands upon thousands of dollars to help out good causes in their local areas.... hoorah!!!
Then there's Habitat for Humanity, something my hubby has given time and effort to. Local Food Banks, they run on donated food and clothing, people willing to volunteer their time. Then there's the Salvation Army, where would they be without the thousands of volunteers standing in the cold ringing the bell to raise money over the Christmas period.
So yes, there are people out there who need our help, here at home, in our own back yards... they need our help, our strength and our prayers. Most of all we need to look at our kids and help them not to become another statistic under another bridge, not just as parents but as mentors and examples.
Thanks Jenny for your very moving post... please click the link, read it and make your next move!!!!
