Whether by homicide or suicide...."A child or teen dies from a gun every 2 hours and 48 minutes."

Think about this not just today on #NationalWalkOutDay...but also tomorrow, and every day. Kids are our ONLY future. We must do better.

Here are some more gun-related facts from the Children's Defense Fund: http://www.childrensdefense.org/library/data/cdf-protect-children-not-guns.pdf

Please watch this TED.com video to become better educated on modern slavery and human trafficking. Today is #HumanTraffickingAwarenessDay (part of January's Human Trafficking Awareness Month).

We must #EndHumanTrafficking in our lifetime. It affects adults as well as children around the world.

#StayWoke

So pleased the topic of the "Highly Gifted" is being addressed on NPR's 1a show.

Asynchrony of the profoundly gifted can't be emphasized enough!

They are "many ages at once", and can appear both advanced and delayed in any particular situation, dependent upon how well the particular situation supports their academic, physical, artistic, and social and emotional needs.

This asynchrony (combined with their intense Dabrowski overexcitabilities) contributes much to the misunderstanding and medical misdiagnosis of these children. The crucial challenge society must arise to is to fully understand and support them, as they are found in all ethnicities, races, genders, and socioeconomic levels.

Every person must move forward in forgiveness or the world will soon shatter.
The endless violence - in words & in actions - must end now.
We are all humans.

Enough is enough. Just stop the hate.
