a line from a movie (parenthood) has always stuck with me...paraphrased:

"you need a license to drive, you need a license to get married or start a business, heck you even need a license to catch a fish! but, any dickhead can be a parent." :censored: :censored:

kids are a gift to be taken seriously...or not at all

even the ones that drive you insane, bill? :p

loco, i feel as strongly as you do...if i was ever in the position to help a child in that predicament, i'd rather explain to the judge why i kicked mommy & daddy's butts than go to a kid's funeral :devilish:

boy! you really struck a nerve this morning...this issue is very personal for me.

Sad loco, it really is. All we can do is our part.
My Sister told me of a couple that had their 6 month old between them in bed and sufficated the child in the night by rolling over.

I have been clean 'n sober 25 years and have lived, seen and heard way too many stories that fall into this class of horror.

I donate my old electronics to women's shelters here in LB.
Saturday I'm going to look at old Shwinn and Worksman bicycles that are part of a kids charity.
The youngsters clean 'n oil'em then turn the profit to buy more bikes.
Most of this lot came from Boeing. I'm looking forward to having a lunch break with them this Saturday by invite of the program sponser.

Ya know, I should really bring some cold sodas for the kids and make up some cards with motoredbikes.com on them. :)
That's what little I can personally do to make a difference and take no credit for any outcome.

Peace. :cool:

tom will gladly send you stickers for future "pay it forward" endeavors! email him your address and let him know how many you need. i love the thought of the kids looking at the bikes 8)

ps-when in fla, i collected pc donations nationwide (thru the SysOpt & the techIMO forums) and built free-internet ready machines for other disabled veterans, it's very gratifying to get outta yer own head for a while :D

iagree

My neighbors had 2 children, they were real busy with slac (stanford linear excelarator) the youngest was not being watched, he turned on straight hot water in the bathtub, and steped his 2 year old self into the scalding water! Need I say more! :( The kid had 2nd to 3rd degree burns on his feet and calfs. :???: I think they needed a babysitter while at home too!
