What Inspires You to Protect Children?

Carnival of Family Life organiser, Kailani over at An Island Life, is running a photo competition around "What inspires you?" Always interested in market research around what inspires individuals and businesses interested in preventing child sexual abuse, I spent a moment reflecting on why I am inspired to give my career, my life, my passion to working against child abuse.

I am inspired by the sun rising every day and providing us with yet another day to make a difference in the life of a child, somewhere. Working in the area of child sexual abuse prevention and counselling is fraught with many black moments. How easy it would be for me to become bitter, cynical and disempowered? How easy it would be for me to say, "too hard, there's no thanks and certainly little remuneration in this, I'm out of here."

Rather than give up, I end and begin my days with reading other socially conscious bloggers thoughts, ideas and commitments. I seek comfort in knowing that the issues that I am unable to contribute to are being championed by others. The colourful quilt of days beginning and end reminds me that blackness can only be contrasted against light and beauty and that it is acceptable to view the world through rose coloured glasses. This is my inspiration and my vitamin boost of care for kids at risk.

Without sunset to end my busy work day, I cannot begin refreshed tomorrow. As my sun sets and I prepare for bed, the sun rises on the other side of the world and the second shift of global workers fighting to make the world a safer place for our kids begins.

This is my inspiration. What inspires you to protect children? Head on over to An Island Life and vote for inspiration.

So much wisdom in the 24 hour day and our inability to change or tweak it! Loved the photo and the share.

Hugs,

Hi Megan,

What a nice picture. I would that there was an island without child abuse; we could move to there and see how we could change the world so that child abuse will dissappear out of the entire world

Hi Holly and Erik
thanks for your positive comments.
I wish that I had both the wisdom and the island to move to!
