shout out!

against are just five scary facts:

*1 in 5 children (10 to 17 years old) receives unwanted sexual solicitations online
*As of December 2005, child pornography was a $3 billion annual industry
*Hollywood produces 400 feature films a year. The porn industry churns out 11,000.
*The Internet was a significant factor in 2 out of 3 divorces
*The pornography industry brings in more money in one year than every NBA, NFL, and MLB team combined

A friend who worked in a prison, told me that %100 percent of the prisoners he met were into pornography. Every man he met in that prison had pornography involved in the beginnings of their criminal records. And everywhere he looked, the addiction continued with posters on the wall, etc.

There are many issues that face us and our kids today. And most of them I'm willing to fight by starting in the home. Teaching my children morals. Helping the future generation know right from wrong. Voting and having a public say when I can. And being an example. But this issue, pornography, I'm willing to go the extra mile to fight.

So, I've joined a group of moms who are fighting this legally.
The Lighted Candle Society is fighting pornography with statistics, research, and in courts. The courts are telling them, come to us with facts, not morals. And this is their goal.
Mary's Army is a branch of this, the group of mothers who want to help.

I should have read this earlier...we just stayed at the Marriott in Park City over the weekend...I would have totally chewed them out! Way to stand up for what's right!

So...when are we going to get together? I am dying to hear stories and see more pic's of your big trip!
