How about you pay attention. Course maybe if the baby was shaped like a cell phone (they never seemRead More to forget those).

Already this summer there are far too many incidents of children and pets being left to die in hotRead More cars. Make a statement. Be alert. Let others know that this negligence is unacceptable. Buy a shirt, form a team, grab your friends and volunteer some time to do a car check the next time you are in a hot parking lot. Bring a hammer or crowbar just in case. This is a two tier project. First, preorder your t-shirt, tank top or hoody at http://teespring.com/windowbreaker T-shirt sales goal = 50 shirts in 20 days. For those who not familiar with teespring. com, pre-order your shirt on reserve. When the goal of 50 shirts is met or exceeded, shirts will be shipped to you by the company. If the goal is not met, the order is cancelled and no money is charged to you or your credit card. Proceeds from shirt sales will be reinvested to purchase bumper stickers that will be available locally and online. Bumper stickers will spread the message to a greater audience and remind the ignorant that we are paying attention - even if they are not! It is our moral obligation to protect those who cannot protect themselves. There comes a time when we are called to act. The time to act is now before another victim headlines the news. Will you choose to be part of the answer? I did. I ordered my shirt last night. Join this worthwhile cause TODAY! Please share

Great idea and kudos to this kid who invented this but this poor kid is in for a rude awakening whenRead More some moron tries to sue him because he put it in his car and it broke or fell off and the person didn't get reminded that his baby was in the car and it died. Sorry but this is the society we have raised!

Linda is a great example of how one person can make a significant impact in the world. HerRead More dedication and passion creates a ripple effect in a pool of still water and has already made a tangible difference in the lives of many local victims of DV. I'm so happy to count her in my circle of friends. Great article, Joy!

Thanks so much for all the kind words and most of all for your friendship and support as we tackleRead More intimate partner violence, child abuse and senior abuse. Because we work together we can make a difference.

What a wonderful cause that Linda has been putting so much time and energy in for so long. And sheRead More is making such a difference for so many women and children.

These are the sweetest dogs. I've met them several times and they are all so well behaved and loveRead More to be petted. The kids at GSA always look for them during practice in the evenings.
Scott Bernarde July 29, 2013 at 05:01 pm
I see these dogs being walked quite often in the mornings. What a great image! Cool video, too.

If this information can save even one life/family, then it's all worth it! Linda is right -Read More domestic abuse is a choice not an illness. Let's all choose NO MORE!
Margot Ashley November 27, 2011 at 04:49 pm
It took most of the article to discover that this was Main Street in Tucker and not Main Street inRead More Lilburn. That would have been a helpful piece of information to include in the first paragraph.
Theresa Waldrop November 27, 2011 at 08:54 pm
Good point, Margot. I just changed it.

Thanks for the update. It is wonderful to know that there is a drug that at least slows the growthRead More of the tumors. Perhaps the next drug will zap them for good. Drew, glad you are doing well. Great Tshirt design!
