Children resist change. Parents resist change that will cause their children to resist. The question is what will be the cost if the change does not occur? In today’s world, the health and safety of our families are at stake. There are forces, whether contrived or just side effects of our modern social lifestyles that are isolating our children. They are being isolated from their family heritage, the values that give them resilience, integrity, and problem-solving skills. More important our youth are being handicapped with social pressures that are illegitimate narratives regarding what is truth.

Change is always challenging. For the most part, it is hard and often painful. Most change comes about because of some trauma. An example would be years of poor eating choices that result in a heart attack will come to an abrupt halt, with new eating habits being instituted. Because failure to make the change will result in my trauma. If a person can make the change, prior to suffering the effects of a bad situation, the trauma can often be avoided for a healthier, more stable lifestyle. The saying “an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure” comes to mind.

As parents, we have to make choices every day as to the welfare of our children. It is my invitation, that we as a community of caring people, make the hard choices for a better tomorrow. Choices that free us and our children from the dependencies of our modern fragmented society. Choices that allow for a healthier, safer and brighter tomorrow.

God speed,
