Broken Wing

Pamela Alderman's avatar Pamela Alderman Vote Code: 66688

What can we do to stop school shootings? Many of the current solutions only seem to trigger more verbal bullets and D.C. war games. But to reach our kids--those who are hurting, isolated, bullied, or struggling with caustic emotions--we all need to be part of the answer. The butterfly effect, an alternative scientific theory, challenges us to consider that every action has a reaction. Like the tiny motion from the butterfly's wings, the smallest deed or word has an effect. Every interaction--positive or negative--has the potential to change the course of a child's life. Broken Wings, a catalyst for safeguarding and nurturing kids, invites a response. Leave a comment. Sketch how you feel. Record your wish or prayer. Or write your solution on how to protect our children--our delicate beautiful butterflies. Your idea could be the next creative spark that changes our nation's story. Help heal America.
