My wish for each of you this Year.
I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you'll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you'll make something that didn't exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and to like in return. And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will always be kind.-Neil Gaiman
One of the things I have wanted to do for a while is volunteer in my community and to that end I have sent a query to a local agency about being a CASA volunteer.Please go to CASA's website for more information. I want to do this because I was abused as a child by someone close to me and remember feeling I had no one who understood or advocated for me. I know that this program requires extensive training and a long term commitment but I want to look into it.
Here is a sobering fact: In the US 850 children enter the foster care system every day.
