We are losing over 200 of our children every single day...every 8 min in the U.S.! We all fought for our children in their battle whether it be years or 1 time. We now continue to fight the stigma of this disease in order to save others! By sharing the photos on these banners of our children lost to this epidemic, they not only are remembered but their faces carry the strong message reminding us all - the 3 most dangerous words - “NOT MY CHILD!”.
We want to put Our Children’s faces in front of politicians, struggling addicts, the parents who think “Not My Child!”, the uneducated children in our schools, the cold hearted or just close minded people that think those struggling are “worthless junkies. They were people. They mattered! They didn’t wake up one day and choose addiction instead of their future happiness or their children now left behind. We mamas may have lost our own children but we are growing stronger by the minute and we will not sit silent like our politicians or the many who are scared to talk about it. We are going to move mountains! Like Agatha Christie said, “A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity. It dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.” Well I tell you- I know I’m one mama ready to CRUSH! I couldn’t save my own amazing son nor could many others moms and dads because we were left without so much of the knowledge that is now coming to surface. HEAR ME though!...we are watching, we are listening, we are learning and we are fighting for all of our future.
We are all warriors in the fight to save your child, your brother, your sister, your mama, your daddy or your best friend!
I do these “Can You See Me Now” banners to honor my son, Trey and all of those gone too soon!
We will NOT let their faces be forgotten.
Help if you can to get these banners in as many groups hands to advocate for RECOVERY and save a life!!!
