Over the weekend, I went to a dog adoption event in Los Angeles.

These are some of the miniature pinschers rescued from a puppy mill in Riverside. The picture above simply looks like a group of average dogs resting and enjoying the company of each other. But they endured a heart breaking past It is understandable that people are particular about getting a dog breed who would best match their lifestyle. But treating animals like merchandise is a mentality that needs to be changed, to say the least. Not only do irresponsible breeders treat their dogs like money making machines, their... Read More

With Father’s Day rapidly approaching, I’m thinking about my dad, whose 80 years old now but still going strong. When I look back at all of the milestones he took me through, I can’t help but recall the patience he exhibited with me over the years, most notably when he taught me how to drive a car.

Although I consider myself a good driver today at age 50, I had a very rocky start in the world of vehicle operation way back in the summer of 1974, when I turned 16. The school I attended didn’t have a driver’s education behind-the-wheel program, so my father tried to teach me himself, in... Read More

It may shock you to learn that According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children there are to date over 300,000 children involved in forced child prostitution. The average age of these children is only 14 years old with some of the children as young as 9 years old. These child victims are trafficked everyday by sophisticated and violent prostitution rings across state lines. Peddled and discarded in what is being called, “The slavery of the 21st Century”. (NCMEC)

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in cooperation with the FBI are working countless... Read More

The engine fired up just as my father said, "goodbye", and backed out of the driveway. I was fourteen and I didn't have a clue that this would be the last time we ever spoke. When the call came that afternoon that my dad had been killed in an auto accident, everything changed. Five kids and a mother were witness to just how quickly and unexpected a life can be extinguished. Our being's simply and dramatically turned in multiple directions, all previously, unknown. There are all kinds of inquiries that still slip in and out of my mind. The "what ifs" and "I wonder what's" abound, in the back... Read More

Ann Marie always yearned for a college degree, but she had to put her dream on hold. She is a 25-year-old mother who works to support her two-year-old and seven-year-old step-daughter, while their dad has been deployed overseas. And in addition to caring for her own family, she also serves as power of attorney for her best friend’s young daughter while both parents serve in Iraq.

“With my former husband being deployed on and off over the past two years, I’ve had to double up and be Mommy and Daddy all alone. School couldn’t be a factor when I was alone to raise my family,” said Ann... Read More

Sweeping the sins of the Catholics, under the altar --Who would Jesus believe

I was recently called by a new friend to help her with a situation at a catholic school in Marin County, California. I was asked to come with her as an advocate and a translator.

What follows is a shock yet, not a surprise, being that the catholic church and it’s people are showing who they are in spite of claiming they are “Christ centered“.

My friend’s five year old daughter attends kindergarten at this “Christ centered school” in San Rafael. The child is bright, enthusiastic, highly intelligent... Read More

Christmas is all about gift giving, Santa Claus and caroling; overeating and sleeping in; egg nog and mistletoe; wild office parties and designated drivers. It's about getting together with relatives you cannot stand and sitting in airports for hours on end; driving around mall parking lots and dealing with screaming brats and teetering seniors. It's about putting lights on the house without falling off the roof; killing a perfectly nice evergreen tree and keeping it alive in your living room with sugar water until December 26th, when you dump it on the corner like an unwanted stepchild....
