Caylee Anthony’s Death Can Make A Difference in Another Child’s Life

September 17, 2011

I think many of us who followed the Caylee Anthony case and watched in shock as her mother walked away a free woman have felt a sense of deep sadness and anger that justice was not served.  You could add the names of Haylee Cummings, Gabriel Johnson, Kyron Horman…..the list is seemingly endless.  It would be easy to throw up our hands and say, “There’s nothing I can do.  It sucks but it’s the truth, so I’m done.” But what if there is something you, as an individual, CAN do?  What if there is something ONLY you can do that might mean hope instead of despair for another child like Caylee? A lot of time and effort has been put in by a LOT of people to follow this case and others, me included.  The fact is, there was never anything we could have done to save Caylee. From the moment we heard her name it was too late.   But it’s not too late to save a whole lot of children destined to suffer Caylee’s fate if each of us would just step up and step out to help.

In an effort to promote ways we can make a difference in the lives of children at risk, I’m starting a series of articles to raise awareness of just what’s available out there that we, as concerned citizens who truly care for the welfare of all children, can do to make a difference.  Some involve a great deal of your time and some just a little. (like signing the petition for Caylee’s Law)

There are so many kids that need our help all around the world, many in our own backyards. (sometimes literally–think Jaycee Dugard)  Caylee Anthony was just one child at risk.  If her death can inspire just one person (you?) to stand up and do just one thing to help just one other child that still has a chance, then Caylee did not live in vain, and by her death many might truly benefit.

Don’t be a person that stands on the sidelines and watches.  Get in the race!  Make your life make a difference. I promise, it will rock your world in ways you could never imagine.

Tomorrow, I’m posting an article on Caylee’s Law by my first ever guest writer, Marie Owens.  She will be writing about Caylee’s Law.   Over 1.3 million people have signed that petition online. If you haven’t already, please add your signature to that list! We CAN make a difference!!!
