Founder’s Letter for Positive Parenting
America’s children sat on a wall.
America’s children had a great fall.
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
couldn’t put America’s future back together again.
At this very grave and precarious time in our history, you as a parent have more reason to doubt the quality of your children’s education, fear for their safety, and dread what their future holds than your parents ever imagined.
There are countless secondary reasons why we have come to this point, but the primary reason, the root of our unraveling that bankrupts our economy and raises our fears, is the consequence of our fatal flaw that leaves our children to chance.
What happens when a great nation fails its future? Our future checks out. Our exploding rates of youth violence, drop outs, casual sex, pregnancy, mental illness, drugs and alcohol addictions, health complications, and suicide are second to none in the civilized world.
The annual cost to you, the taxpayer? $1.2.trillion every year. Yes, $1.2 trillion every year to put band aids on broken children.
In comparison, a decade of our Middle East conflicts is estimated at $1 trillion.
Certainly $1.2 trillion is enough to balance our budget, find cures for cancer, obesity, and heart disease, fund 21st Century education, keep our children safe in their communities, rebuild our infrastructure, create jobs, feed the hungry, house the homeless, and probably even pave our streets with gold.
You want change. You want your children safe in their school and neighborhood. You want your tax dollars funding their world-class education, not world-class prisons that we build and fill faster than any nation in the history of the world.
You want a balanced budget supported by citizens equipped to contribute to civil society.
The America’s Angel Campaign is a patriotic initiative to bring all of America’s children to the front of the line.
This mission has attracted a national Advisory Board, professional athletes, and created a website to support parents, educators, and policy makers to meet the needs of our nation’s children.
The heart of the Campaign holds every child’s wish to be safe, to be nurtured, to belong. With your support, the America’s Angel logo will become their symbol of Hope.
America’s Angel is your Campaign to make the kids you love safer, happier, and hopeful for their future. To be part of the Solution, here’s what you can do now:
- Become a PLAY-based family
- Meet the developmental needs of your children
- Introduce your family, friends, PTA, and networks to this mission.
- Support young parents with your time and listening ear.
- Volunteer in your child’s classroom
- Support your community’s youth programs
- Donate to strengthen our families
- Display the Campaign decal on your home or car window
- Tell our politicians if they value your vote to vote for what you value
“We cannot afford any longer to bury our heads in the sand.
We do know what to do. Can we create the national will to do it?”
Dr. T. Berry Brazelton
Professor Emeritus, Harvard Medical School
Today’s neuroscience leaves no doubt that nation building begins in the arms of our parents. With our families, economy, and future collapsing, The America’s Angel Campaign invites those who value the promise of our children to join this citizens effort to bring our children forward, to take America higher.
Uniting as “We the People” we will create the change our children can believe in.
It’s up to you. Are you in?
