Definition of a child: A boy or girl between birth and full growth that is an off spring.
Children are our most precious resource, but as children, they often lack the skills to protect themselves. An old African proverb stated: “It takes a village to raise a Child.”
Sadly enough, our children are paying the greatest price with their lively hood.
As a parent, we are responsibilities to protect our children and to teach them the skills are safe. Educators should teach children about safety and protection measures. Parent should take an active interest in your children and listen to them. As a society, we can protect our children and teach them be careful in all their endeavors.
Too many times, children and teenagers who have gone missing do not have an Amber Alert issued.
Cases like Isabel Mercedes Celis, Ava Enlow, Jhessye Shockley, Max Hernandez, Gabriel Johnson, Kyron Horman, Chelsea King, Monte and Collin Walker did not either have an Amber Alert issued or the Amber Alert delay, by red-tape, miscommunication, or that the abduction doesn’t fit the criteria. To help put an end to these situations. We need our country have “Mandatory Amber Alerts.”
In the wake of the Casey Anthony verdict, many states are making plans to adopt some version of what will be known as “Caylee’s Law.” The goal is to prevent similar situations from happening.
We want our Arizona State Lawmakers have a bolder and constitutional version of Caylee’s Law.
A bolder version would need parents to report within 24 hours of realizing their child or a child under their care is missing. Additionally, parents or legal guardians would be required to contact law enforcement within one hour of discovering their child had died. Those failing to do so would face criminal charges.
