Such a great email to wake up to! It’s bitter sweet however because it reminds us that we are still 2 out of 4 total missing teen girls in the last 5 months…brings deep sadness thinking of why can 2 return and not the others.

My prayers and hopes for A Seasonal Miracle however, have been restored. Please join me in hope, help, support, in love and search for the remaining missing:

#OurMissingYouth

Orangeville’s own SamanthaCowen, 16 &
NewTecumseth’s JoseeCharbonneau, 15
BOTH, Nov27th Reported #missing Teens.

The news of these two missing girls, comes just four months after (Peel Region) Brampton, Ontario’s Mila Johnson
was reported missing (Aug 3rd)
…and days after that on Aug 11 –also Orangeville’s Melosa Carrio had gone missing.

There is a sense of responsibility felt as a mother in general, whenever anyone’s child has been reported missing; and as a member of a small community, I definitely feel it’s important to talk about these missing teens.

We must be watchful for these Teen Girls!

“It takes a Village to Raise a Child” has never been a truer statement in this day and age of Bullying, Cyber Bullying, and the many issues #OurMissingYouth face in their daily lives.

If our Schools, Government, Police and community residents like you and I, all play a part in raising our babies–we must all stand up to take part tracing their foot steps, getting involved, and do whatever possible to assist in finding these children.
Please, take the time to talk to your children (no matter the age) about cyber safety, “stranger danger” and most importantly of awareness.

I am just a Mom, praying, listening, looking and hoping for desirable outcomes for seeing these youth returned to their homes and families–no matter the cost! Everyday Tweet, Post, share a picture, write a blog, circulate photos; whatever you CAN do to help.

(*I am NOT a reporter, or officer, or involved in cases at all–just a concerned Mom, spreading the word of our missing youth*)

In Memory of #RIPAmandaTodd

RIP Amanda Todd

we must speak up #TalkAboutIt Talk about Suicide and horrifying events that happen during our adolescents with our children, more importantly to LISTEN for them.

SERIOUS POST … click link below for details on amanda-todd-suicide-2012

This video, story, situation, happens more than we think.
(I believe our newspapers have a Ban on printing about Suicides)
Just because we don’t hear about them doesn’t mean they don’t happen.
PLEASE, keep in contact with your children because essentially that’s all this girl was, A Child. A month after this video was shot (or so I read) the most TRAGIC Ending occurred…
I wish I could’ve helped.
Suicide Prevention MUST be available to everyone including in our Schools. Period.
LAST Month was: “Suicide Prevention Month”!?!
Watching Amanda Todd video,
my thoughts were LOUD:
“Where Was I? How did Amanda Todd just slip through the cracks?”
Yes theres so many more and this is not the only tragedy but it rang true and too close to home for me…Tears ran all afternoon watching her video.
Emotions were on HIGH:
I could Feel the GUTT-WRENCHING Agony of experiences of my Youth, swelling up my throat and Burning my Eyes….
It Tore at my Heart. The Fear. The realistic Fear that convinced me to my core of nothing EVER getting better, EVER… It overwhelmed me as i watched her word pictures flip one.. By one…and, time stopped when the last was shown…
….”I Have Nobody”….
(still ringing in my ears)
I have been there more times than I can honestly count…

Understandably, I may get disagreements or some backlash for saying this but, I believe we must implement in School Curriculum (possibly in Health Subject, Gym, alike). There Are ways we can make it about “Celebrating A Life and (Sharing) it’s Difficulties”. Along those lines. There are more than just a small handful of Tweens and Teens in our Schools that are suffering secretly with these types of undetectable emotions, where providing more information FREELY (ie in curriculum) MIGHT Encourage students to understand which thoughts are ‘normal’ or developmental at their stage; or if they’re something worth seeking help with… The ‘follow up’ with student that seeks help, is a whole other blog series because its just as detrimental to their security and self worth! Thats one SUGGESTION as to How a Suicide Prevention Message CAN and should be sent across to our young adults/kids.
I had similar experiences to Amanda Todd’s. I felt the loneliness. Ive ran away. Ive switched Schools. Ive been bullied. I’ve been in terrifying threatening situations from Mobs of people my age whom I thought I could trust. Ive felt like theres no way out.
We need to provide a better Way Out for these emotions and children, other than this.
I turned to no one because I thought I was the ONLY PERSON going thru this in the world…
I Firmly believe “NoOne Dies In Vain”.. With just as much Firmness, i Refuse to allow Amanada’s Suicide be in Vain.
I VOW to Stand Up–
for myself and others being Bullied
I VOW to Speak Up–I Admit vulnerably here that Im guilty. In past I overheard terrible comments about a fellow student from a teen in a coffee shop and was afraid; I said nothing–
I REFUSE to Keep Quiet Again!
I VOW to Listen Up–to my daughters and all whom approach me or i hear are sufferring!
I VOW to Amanda and all whom are suffering to DO whatever I can in my power to be the Voice of Bullied everywhere–cyber or real life.

VOW with me.
Leave an experience that you’ve had bully or bullied–
How This Story Changed YOU.
If Amanada Todd only knew me and if I only knew her…20121012-171051.jpg
