Calling All Mothers:

It's not the same today in 2011 as it was in the 70's, 80's, or 90's. Do you remember what it used to be like? If not this is a peek of the past.
Nurses wore white uniforms, white shoes, white hose and a nursing cap with a black velvet stripe to signify she was an RN.  There was no perfume, make up, nail polish or jewelry worn.  They were proud of their school pin and class logo. Scrubs worn outside of an operating room were forbidden. Today it's different. Sometimes it's even hard to tell who is the nurse in the setting. Nurses are fragmented and specialized. It they united this group would be tremendously powerful to change laws.

What hasn't changed is our handle on sexual molestation of girls and boys under the age of 18. We are still unable to protect them from perpetrators. We know more but it seems like the topic is so vile that we are unable to have discussions. Each one of the victims has a mother and mothers...when we get together we are powerful! I am talking to the ones who did not offend their child. We can ban together, make a difference and change the thinking.  If you are the mother of a survivor, I am looking for you. It you are a mother who wants to become involved, you are also welcome.

 If you want to help the survivors. Purchase "Under My Roof..." and you are doing just that. The profits from this book are given to support programs.
