OUR Children Are Dying From ADHD Drugs! WAKE UP! / Coffee May Stave Off Depression / Good Friday and Easter Monday are Holidays

 

                       Come on Folks!  Wake UP!

OUR Children are dying
from ADHD Drugs!

Sadly,
the deaths of many children
has remained suppressed
for so long because there is
a tremendous amount of
money and profit at $take.

Between 1990 and 2000 there were 186 deaths
from methylphenidate (Ritalin)
reported to the FDA MedWatch program,
a voluntary reporting scheme,
the numbers of which represent
no more than 10 to 20%
of the actual incidence.

We need to expose
the health risks, dangers, deaths
and suicides
that are a direct result
of administering Ritalin
and other psychiatric drugs to children.

Does Ritalin Increase Cancer Risk in Children?

Research is raising concerns about the drug Ritalin,
suggesting that children who take it
may have an increased risk of
cancer
.

Ten year old Harry Hucknall’s death resulted from two ‘mind-altering’ drugs that had been prescribed  by a psychiatrist. read  more

ALL of the children
included in a University of Texas study experienced
an increase in chromosome abnormalities
just three months after starting Ritalin.

Chromosome damage has been linked
to heightened cancer risk
and to other health problems.

Lead researcher Randa A. El-Zein, MD, PhD, and colleagues
found a THREEFOLD increase
in the level of chromosomal damage
in the samples taken after the children
were started on Ritalin.

Several animal studies have also suggested
a link between Ritalin use
and cancer.

Chemicals for ADD and ADHD?

Something is wrong,
but not with your precious child.

God, in His Wisdom,
has never created a child
He did not deeply Love.
The concern you express for your child
is part of that abiding Love.

Matthew was a teenager
who had been on Ritalin for seven years.
His death certificate reads:
“Death caused from long-term use
of methylphenidate (Ritalin).”
read more

Please consult with your physician
and ask him or her to remove your child
from all the harmful chemicals
that will create more and more issues
as time passes.
The research that is readily available
has led to the conclusion
that no child should be subjected
to the long term effects

of these substances.
And very few longitudinal studies
have been conducted.

I do NOT wonder
Why $ $ $ $.

Another boy named Matthew had been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD. And like an estimated 2.5 million other children in the United States, he was taking medication for the condition.

Matthew took his pill that morning with a glass of water. He was later found after he had collapsed on the bathroom floor.  read more

Please
type the name of your child’s prescription(s)
combined with two more words,
“________   and cancer“,
and read the results.
Yes,
you will be horrified.

The Drug Enforcement Administration
had classified Methylphenidate (Ritalin)
as a Schedule II drug,
comparable to Cocaine.

Methylphenidate is also one of the top ten
abused prescription drugs.
Ritalin causes constriction of veins and arteries,
causing the heart to work overtime
and inevitably leading to damage
to the organ itself.

Eleven year old Stephanie Hall’s teacher suggested that she be tested for ADD. Stephanie’s Death was caused From Ritalin used to treat ADHD.  read more

It is a violation of parent’s rights
when they are not told of the unscientific nature
of so-called disorders such as ADHD
or the risks of the treatments
involving drugs like Ritalin.

Did you know that by labeling your child
with ADHD,
you are actually labeling them
with a mental illness?

Did you know that a child
taking psycho-tropic, psycho-stimulant drugs
like Ritalin after the age of 12
is ineligible for military service?

   Why?
   What do they know
that we do not know?

Did you know that the subjective checklists
that are being used as criteria for diagnosis
are very similar to the checklists used to determine
Gifted and Talented Children?

These two checklists are almost
identical.

Ten year-old Shaina Dunkle was diagnosed with ADHD by her school psychologist. Her death was caused from Desipramine used to treat ADHD.

My Dear Friends,
bright children are not passive players
in the game of Life.
They are active.
Such activity is a NATURAL by-product
of high intelligence.

Get on your knees
and Thank God
you have NORMAL, intelligent
and yes, ACTIVE children.
What a Blessing!

Did you know that there are studies
such as the Berkeley Study
that contend that Ritalin and other stimulants
further raise the risk of drug abuse?
Ritalin makes the brain more susceptible
to the addictive power of cocaine
and doubles the risk of abuse.

         Come on Folks!
        Wake UP!

What needs to change
is the academic environment.
It needs to allow for normal active children.

Hyperactive children simply
do not exist.

Most boys are highly active
and for a good reason.
It relates to the survival of the species.
Think about it!

And common LOGIC dictates what is so apparent:
WE ARE A PART OF NATURE
NOT APART FROM NATURE.

Your child is acting normal!
Put him or her outside in the fresh air
with God’s bountiful sunshine
and allow for activity.

Take advantage of the high activity level
and enroll your child in a great sports program.
Wear him or her out on the soccer field
or playing a ball game like baseball
or camping out with a Scout Troop, etc., etc. etc.
Instead of drugging up your kid,
set him up for recognition for his athletic ability.
Take advantage of the GIFT
of being a healthy active HUMAN being.

Don’t bury your loved one in an early grave
because you lack the courage
to say NO!

Don’t just say it,
shout  NO”

There is Beauty in Courage.
There is no need to water the flowers
you place on the grave of your precious child
with your tears.
Tears should be shed only for
joy.

INVITE the uninformed person
who insisted your child become a lab rat
to take the drug instead.
Yes, insist they go on the drug first.
Look into their horrified eyes when they scream,
“What?”

bix 2

If YOU are not a strong advocate for your child, NO ONE WILL BE. That is why God gave you HIS Child – to shelter the deeply loved from the storms of Life, to protect, to Honor, to serve, and LOVE above all things on this Earth.

And
Love my Friend,
is Courage.

Please take the time to research these substances and have your precious son or daughter removed from them. I would also change my physician. If he or she has taken the convenient and profitable way to medically treat your family, then he or she needs to be removed from service.

Obviously,
the good Doctor has not researched the topic
to the degree enough to reach a compassionate,
reliably informed and reasonable conclusion.

The qualifications of physicians also follow,
like everything else in life,
the bell-shaped curve of probability.
Some are at the lower end of expectations
relative to the awareness of what they do.
Some will write a prescription for anything.
Just be sure to pay the bill
on your way out.

Motor vehicle accidents
claimed 40,100 deaths in 2017,
almost the same as in 2016 when 40,327
were reported.
But, in recent years,
there has been an annual average
of about 400,000 drug related deaths
and serious injuries in a hospital
that could have been prevented (those we know about).

Research estimates up to 440,000 Americans
are dying annually from preventable hospital errors.
This puts medical errors as the
third leading cause of death
in the United States.
read more

Which leads me to conclude
that the most dangerous place in this country
is not on America’s highways,
but in the doctor’s waiting room.

Like Jesus said,
“Forgive them, for they know not what they do.”
Some truly do not know.

Your
instinctive and abiding Love for your child
allows for insight into what is happening.
Please follow your instincts.
God has given them to you for a reason.
And that reason always points
to His abundant Love for you
and your child.

Your child is perfection,
as are all of God’s children.

Please remove your children from all substances
that tarnish the Will of God.
What is truly needed
is the abundant Love of our Lord
that flows through you.

That is all your children
will ever need.

Goodnight.

Drinking coffee
may stave off depression.

A study of some 50,000 female nurses in the US
over a period of ten years suggests that women
who drank 2 or 3 cups of coffee a day
reduced their risk of depression by 15%
compared with those who drank one cup or less.
And those who drank four cups or more
had a 20% risk reduction.

Never Again Lock This Door / Shiitake Mushrooms / Philippe Henri Arrighi

Neuroscientists believe
that hearing another person laugh
triggers mirror neurons in a region of the brain
that makes listeners feel as though
they are actually laughing themselves.

tree

           To shine a Light of Hope.

As we inhabit our Spheres
dimly lit or unaware,
each of us reflects
from time rare
to forgotten,

upon our purpose
far or near,

for the deeper meaning of Life,
the reason we are here.

You,
birdalone,
among all the precious
living things in the
Universe,
possess the singular ability
to save the Life
of someone known
but to God above,
and desperately in need
of His Love.

    You and I are here for Love.

To instill Hope
in the Life of another,
is to raise from the dead
a Life lost
in the horrible abyss of
apathy.

God
endowed each of us
with precious and amazing Gifts
to deeply touch
the Hearts and minds
of others.

Yes,
you are here
for a reason:
to shine a Light
of Hope,
to shower all those around you
with the Blessings
of God’s abundant Love,
reflected and refracted through the prism
of your beautiful personality.

May your unfolding be like that of God’s beautiful Flowers.

My Dear Friends,
the reason you are here
has nothing
to do with
you.

You and I
are here for
Love.

We are in this small space,
on this tiny planet,
in this one sliver of time,
to open our Hearts
and let the Infinite Love
of God
flow through us,
the Love
that sparkles in your eyes,
the Love shared
with your warm smiles,
charitable thoughts
and forgiving ways.

Blake“If the doors of perception
were cleansed,
everything would appear to man
as it is,
Infinite.”
– William Blake

You
are the greatest Gift
God can bestow
upon someone
in need of His Love.
To open your Heart
is to unwrap
this magical, mystical gift
of Spirit
from Above.

“Nobody on earth jiddu
can give you
either the key

or the door to open,
except yourself.”
– Jiddu Krishnamurti

The door

gives entrance
to the Divine Itself.

For we dwell
in the Divine,
and the Divine dwells in us.
This Truth is the central
awareness of life.

Every man 00t/20/arve/g2327/054

    The real reason we are here.

Your precious Life

“He Who Saves Just One Life
Saves The World Entire”
– Talmud 

My Dear Friends,
the center of the
Universe
is in the middle
of your Heart.
And your Heart
is Home
to everyone
to whom you open
the door.
It is Home
to everything God
desires for you.
It is the question
and the answer.
It is the now
of forever.
It is the pathway
forward.
It is
who you are,
and what God
desires for you.
It is
the Universal language
and the end of all war,
the answer to Prayer
and Salvation
ever after.

It is
Heaven’s Gate.

Look for the
Key,
and never again
lock this door.

Goodnight.

Only Love turns darkness into Light.

“How often we turn our bodies
into prisons

as we carry our hearts around
like inmates.

We hold back our love
until we feel it’s deserved;

we want to be assured
we’re loved in return.

Why are we so selfish
with something of endless supply?

We can turn our bodies into prisms
allowing our sunshine

to cast rainbows
on the world.

Like a rainbow,
love bends, radiates, and stretches,

giving hope to all it reaches.
Love penetrates the darkness
and catches the World on fire.”
Suzi Cate

peonies 4

You alone possess the singular ability.

“As a teacher,
I possess a tremendous power
to make a child’s life miserable or joyous.
I can be a tool of torture
or an instrument of inspiration.
I can humiliate or humor,
hurt or heal.
In all situations,
it is my response that decides
whether a crisis will be escalated
or de-escalated
and a child humanized
or de-humanized.”

From our friends at NaturalNews.com:

Shiitake mushrooms  are native to various parts of Asia. They have been cultivated and prized for thousands of years and are sold both fresh and dried and can be considered a staple of much Asian cuisine.

Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center has studied the shiitake mushroom and managed to isolate one of its active compounds, a substance called lentinan, a form of beta-glucan, a class of molecules with a proven track record of anti-cancer benefits. Lentinan helps to strengthen the body’s natural immunity and that, in turn, helps to stimulate immune cells that can help fight off pathogens, including cancerous and precancerous or mutated cells.

One of the reasons shiitake mushrooms may be so effective at treating cancer is that they are incredibly high in selenium, a mineral needed by the body in small amounts that also has powerful antioxidant properties. Antioxidants are known to reduce oxidative stress to the cells as the body ages and this is significant, since this stress is thought by many to be one of the underlying causes for cancer.

Researchers believe that shiitake mushrooms help prevent cancer by simply promoting and supporting the overall health of the body. Several compounds in shiitakes have cardio-protective properties, helping to lower cholesterol and normalize blood pressure levels. It can also help treat obesity, which is a major risk factor for many different forms of cancer. These mushrooms are copper-rich also which helps support good circulation of the blood and oxygenation of the cells. Cancer cells are known to thrive in low-oxygen environments.

Shiitake mushrooms are delicious delicacies and their active compounds have been shown to have definite anti-carcinogenic effects and might help to prevent the development of this serious disease.

Sunshine Things Far More Than Real / What an Adventuresome Trip / Thank You

“A million Tomorrows

Ere I forget all the Joy

Today.”

– Randy Sparks

dawn 1b

          We live in two Worlds.

The Song your Life
is singing,
can become
like a Beautiful Prayer.
Such is the music
that gives meaning
to Life,
and everything else
there.

“There will be another
song for me,

For I will sing it.
There will be another
dream for me,

Someone will bring it.”
Jimmy Webb

My Dear Friends,
no one can take
what lives within,
for your dreams
are Sunshine Things.
They do not melt
in the dark.
Tomorrow appears
when we close our eyes
and see with Hope
in our Heart,
and not with what lies
brilliantly lit by the Sun
in disguise.

“What life does to me
is not the same thing
as who I am.”
– Michael Brown

dawn 3b

The dawn of things far more than real.

We live
in two Worlds:
one is the Dawn,
the other mirrors the Dawn
of things far more than real,
that we so very deeply
Love
we breathe
Life into them,
that we cherish
above all things
and carry forever
in our Hearts,
that we create
and no one can take apart,
that we Believe in
and celebrate
in song,
as we so joyfully
sing along
all night long
in dreams waking
to the wonder
of who we are.

dawn 4b

     Dreams are sunshine things.

The reflections of our thoughts
and our dreams
look through us
and into the future,
to see what eyes
cannot see
and open the gate
to a tomorrow
no longer held in the arms
of the past.

My Friends,
the mirror
is doing the
looking.

The world of our
imagination
is where we truly Live,
where we
belong.
Far more than figment,
it is the light bearer
of tomorrow,
the touchstone of reality,
without which
we shall not thrive,
and never survive.

“Not only is the universe
stranger than we imagine,

it is stranger
than we can imagine.”

Sir Arthur Eddington

sun 2

No one can take what lives within.

Imagination is far more real than reality.
It is more important
than knowledge,
which is very limited
to what we now know and
think we understand.

Imagination embraces Worlds
unknown,
and perhaps unknowable,
without nuturing an environment
where dreams really do
come true.

spray

Reality is a projection of what we IMAGINE.

And far more importantly,
through a child’s eyes,
JOY and wonder
are what imagination brings.
For without JOY,
why dream and wonder
at all?

“Reality is merely an illusion,
albeit a very persistent one.”
– Albert Einstein

Albert reportedly
may have more properly said,
“To make an apple pie
first you must invent
a Universe.”

mix

Without JOY, why dream and wonder at all?

We live in a beautiful Universe.
But it is a Universe
of our own making,
created within the infinite depths
of the Human mind
and the Human Heart.
It is a projection
of what we believe,
what we want,
what we need,
what we IMAGINE.

And WHAT fires
the Human mind
to create such unfathomable Beauty
as may be found
all around
and in our tomorrow?

sun 3

The mirror is doing the looking.

“Imagination is born
when LOVE‘S alive,
a Spirit creating a place
for you and I.
Together let’s ride away
to find the Universe,
and let our dreams
live our lives.”
– Earth, Wind and Fire

universe

We live in an Unfathomable Universe of OUR OWN MAKING.

Sleep well my Friends,
and Pray
for what truly matters:
all the Love in your Heart
to give to another,
the words
in your Song
to sing
until Dawn,
the time to spend
Loving others,
the Joy you refine
and define,
as we live
and come alive again
to share the happiness
you give,
and give,
and give.

dawn 5b

One is the Dawn, the other mirrors the Dawn of things far more than real.

The real Dawn
is in your dreams,
in your Spirit Divine
that lives within.
It lights the path
for those who follow
and have never seen.
The children of tomorrow
live between
the Loving Thoughts
of God
and your very beautiful
dreams.

“Neither death, nor life, nor angels,
nor principalities, nor powers,
nor things present,

nor things to come, nor height, nor depth,
nor any other creature,
shall be able to separate us
from the Love of God.”
– Romans viii.38, 39.

God still breathes
His Life
into every fiber
of your Being.

Yes,
you can live your Life
again,
and when you
awake,
become what you
dream.

Goodnight.

The Dawn is in your dreams.

“I’ll catch the sun
And never give it back again.
I’ll catch the sun
And keep it for my own.

I’ll even share my sun
With that new anyone
To whom I gave my hand.”

What an Adventure

On our adventuresome trip to Little Rock last week
we learned about Central High School’s place
in the civil rights movement,
explored the Clinton Presidential Center,
toured the Old Mill (a real work of art and Dr. A’s favorite)
and imagined a world free of hunger
and poverty at the Heifer Village.

Sometimes you just need to get up and stretch.

We also enjoyed
the historical bus tour of
Little Rock,
enjoyed the interactive and informative
displays at the Museum of Discovery,
shopped at the Farmer’s Market,
explored the Maritime Museum, holding a collection from the Arkansas River Historical Society featuring the history of the Arkansas River,
and experienced the sights, sounds, and smells
of submarine service when we stepped
aboard the historic submarine
USS Razorback.
This fabulous Museum hosts exhibits dedicated to America’s rich naval history.

What a marvelous tour of the World War II Submarine.

A Song Without Words / Chemicals for ADHD? – NO! / BAYLOR UNIVERSITY / Friday: Shakespeare at School / Adventure Trip Itinerary

“God’s Gifts
put man’s best dreams
to shame
.”
Elizabeth Barrett Browning

dark street corner

A street lamp keeps my Heart searching.

Standing all alone
on a dark corner of the past,
a street lamp
keeps my Heart searching
down a lonesome road
so far I cannot see,
wondering
where I am,
unknowing
I am no longer me.

Finding I am still lost,
ever deepening,
darkening shadows of doubt,
leave little
in the mind
to wonder what this Life
is all about.

But suddenly,
somehow,
I come to know,
as I stand beneath
another Light,
a Heart so full of Love
and all Aglow,
and listen to God’s Voice
ever so softly whisper
from above,
“Let Me show the Way,
the Gift of Love”

“Let the LORD your God
tell us where we should go
and what we should do.”
– Jeremiah 42:3

flower 2

“Each flower is a soul blossoming out to nature.”     – Gerard de Nerval

The light you seek,
one day
you will find.
It shines within
As bright as the Sun
In the full of day,
a day
you come to truly see
is never done.

Today,
you may not read
by the reflection
of God’s Light
in the dark corners
of a restless Heart,
but you can
feel His Warmth,
and see your shadow
cast upon a past
doubtful in mind,
lonely of Soul.

flower

Do not let your Life pass you by.

       Much like the dark we find
lingering around a lonely street lamp,
sorrow can surround you,
as the world all around you,
disappears.

So unaware of the Light
may we be,
that all the Beauty
that abides with you
in the dark,
passes you by.

flower 3

The Beauty that abides with you in the dark.

We move in momentary
disarray,
from shade
to ever lengthening shadow,
faint and dark
to darker still,
never knowing
that not far away
the Sun is ever shinning,
ever near to breaking
upon a Beautiful horizon,
the Dawn
showing us
a new day.

“Faith
will turn any course,
light any path
,
relieve any distress,
bring joy out of sorrow,
peace out of strife,
friendship out of enmity,
Heaven out of hell.
Faith is God
at work.”

– F. L. Holmes

flower

“Happiness held is the seed; happiness shared is the flower.”

Living can be like
a song without words:
Beautiful,
but unknowing
what God wants to say
with your Life.

For He truly desires
to speak with you,
to speak through you,
to have you convey
to others left in the dark,
the joy you find
in the stunning beauty
of the Gift He gives:
the Beautiful Dawn
of a precious new day.

Your Life is a song,
a Beautiful Melody.
And you have much to say,
to share the Love story
of being lost,
of finding the way.

“If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.”  – Buddha

Close your eyes,
My Precious Friends,
and Pray.
Your Father
will Light the path.
He will write the words
to your Beautiful Song,
He will show you the way.
He will give your Life
a depth of meaning,
something to say.

No one
is denied God’s Light,
the comforting Warmth
of His Love.

For you are my lamp,
O LORD:
and the LORD
will lighten my darkness.”
– 2 Samuel 22:29

In all the World
someone
can be Infinitely better
because of you.
What better Gift
can you give,
what better Gift
could you be,
than the Light
of their Life.

Somewhere,
someone may come to know,
“In all the World,
you are all the World,
to me.”

a_084

A day you come to truly see is never done.

We all look back
for a Light
on the path of Life,
never knowing
it was glowing within.
The Light of God’s Love
shines through us,
and it radiates
to everyone.

Yes,
one day you will pause
on the pathway forward,
to retrace the steps
you took
to arrive where you are,
to see where
you have been,
thinking Home
was ever forward,
the journey
near its end,
when
it’s just begun.

a_078

God’s Love lights the way and turns the darkness into day.

Weep not
for your memories.
Do not let your Life
pass you by.

What words
can never say,
happens every day,
in the Miracle of Love
coming through you
from Above.

God is Truth.

Open your Heart.
Say what
you truly feel.
The deepest emotions
of your Sacred Heart
will convey exactly
what others
so long to hear.
Expressions
of your Love
will take you
where you need
to go,
where you long to be,
to what God desires
for your precious Life.

Looking down a lonesome road.

I beg of you
to please know and understand
many have suffered,
many have died
for you to arrive
where you are.
Unknown and countless
are the sacrifices
of yesterday,
giving you this day.

There is magic
in the Mirror
of your Being,
in the Beautiful Dawn
of all possibilities
of who you are,
who you can be.

Your Love
can become indistinguishable
from God’s Love.
O Child of God,
such Love
can be your Treasure
to last
your whole Life long,
and far, far beyond.

There is magic in the mirror.

Accept the Gift.
Honor the Givers.
And
pass it on.

You
are a Prayer

answered
for someone, somewhere,
standing in lonely vigil
on a dim and darkening
street corner of the mind,
looking down a lonesome road
of Life
so far they cannot see,
unknowing
what they are searching for,
is you.

Goodnight.

One day you will pause to see where you have been.

Drinking coffee may stave off depression.
A study of some 50,000 female nurses in the US
over a period of ten years suggests that women
who drank 2 or 3 cups of coffee a day
reduced their risk of depression by 15%
compared with those who drank one cup or less.
And those who drank four cups or more
had a 20% risk reduction.

Chemicals for ADD and ADHD?

Something is wrong,
but not with your precious child. God, in His Wisdom, has never created a child He did not deeply Love. The concern you express for your child is part of that abiding Love.

Please consult with your physician and ask him or her to remove your child from all the harmful chemicals that will create more and more issues as time passes. The research that is readily available has led to the conclusion that no child should be subjected to the long term effects of these substances. And very few longitudinal studies have been conducted.

Please type the name of your child’s prescription(s) combined with two more words,    “____   and cancer“, and read the results.
Yes, you will be horrified.

The Drug Enforcement Administration had classified Methylphenidate (Ritalin) as a Schedule II drug, comparable to Cocaine.

Methylphenidate is also one of the top ten abused prescription drugs. Ritalin causes constriction of veins and arteries, causing the heart to work overtime and inevitably leading to damage to the organ itself.

It is a violation of parent’s rights when they are not told of the unscientific nature of so-called disorders such as ADHD or the risks of the treatments involving drugs like Ritalin.

Did you know that by labeling your child with ADHD, you are actually labeling them with a mental illness?

Did you know that a child taking a psycho-tropic, psycho-stimulant drugs like Ritalin after the age of 12 is ineligible for military service?

                                                    Why?
                         What do they know that we do not know?

Did you know that the subjective checklists that are being used as criteria for diagnosis are very similar to the checklists used to determine Gifted and Talented Children? These two checklists are almost identical. My Dear Friends, bright children are not passive players in the game of life. They are active. Such activity is a NATURAL by-product of high intelligence. Get on your knees and Thank God you have NORMAL, intelligent and yes, ACTIVE children. What a Blessing!

Did you know that there are studies such as the Berkeley Study that contend that Ritalin and other stimulants further raise the risk of drug abuse? Ritalin makes the brain more susceptible to the addictive power of cocaine and doubles the risk of abuse.

Children are dying from ADHD Drugs

Sadly the deaths of many children has remained unexposed and suppressed for so long because there is a tremendous amount of money and profit at stake for so many. Between 1990 and 2000 there were 186 deaths from methylphenidate reported to the FDA MedWatch program, a voluntary reporting scheme, the numbers of which represent no more than 10 to 20% of the actual incidence.

We need to expose the health risks, dangers, deaths and suicides that are a direct result of administering Ritalin and other psychiatric drugs to children. read more

Does Ritalin Increase Cancer Risk in Children?

Research is raising concerns about the drug Ritalin, suggesting that children who take it may have an increased risk of cancer.

All 12 of the children included in a University of Texas study experienced an increase in chromosome abnormalities just three months after starting Ritalin. Chromosome damage has been linked to heightened cancer risk and to other health problems. Lead researcher Randa A. El-Zein, MD, PhD, and colleagues found a THREEFOLD increase in the level of chromosomal damage in the samples taken after the children were started on Ritalin. read more

Several animal studies have also suggested a link between Ritalin use and cancer.

         Come on Folks!      Wake UP!

What needs to change is the academic environment. It needs to allow for normal active children. Hyperactive children simply do not exist. Most boys are highly active and for a good reason. It relates to the survival of the species. Think about it!

And common LOGIC dictates what is so apparent: WE ARE A PART OF NATURE NOT APART FROM NATURE.  Your child is acting normal! Put him or her outside in the fresh air with God’s bountiful sunshine and allow for activity. Take advantage of the high activity level and enroll your child in a great sports program. Wear him or her out on the soccer field or playing a ball game like baseball or camping out with a Scout Troop, etc., etc. etc. Instead of drugging up your kid, set him up for recognition for his athletic ability. Take advantage of the GIFT of being a healthy active HUMAN being.

Don’t bury your loved one in an early grave because you lack the courage to say NO. Don’t just say it, shout  “NO”There is beauty in courage. There is no need to water the flowers you place on the grave of your precious child with your tears. Tears should be shed only for joy.

INVITE the dim wit who insisted your child become a lab rat to take the drug instead. Yes, insist they go on the drug first. Look into their horrified eyes when they scream, “What?”

I’m ready for the sandbox.

If you are not a strong advocate for your child, NO ONE WILL BE. That is why God gave you HIS child – to shelter the deeply loved from the storms of Life, to protect, to Honor, to serve, and LOVE above all things on this Earth. And Love my Friend, is courage.

Please take the time to research these substances and have your precious son or daughter removed from them. I would also change my physician. If he or she has taken the convenient and profitable way to medically treat your family, then he or she needs to be removed from service.

Obviously, the good Doctor has not researched the topic to the degree enough to reach a compassionate, reliably informed and reasonable conclusion. The qualifications of physicians also follow, like everything else in life, the bell-shaped curve of probability. Some are at the lower end of expectations relative to the awareness of what they do. Some will write a prescription for anything. Just be sure to pay the bill on your way out.

Motor vehicle deaths as recently as 2013 totaled 32,719. But, in recent years, there has been an annual average of about 400,000 drug related deaths and serious injuries in a hospital that could have been prevented (those we know about). Which leads me to conclude that the most dangerous place in this country is not on America’s highways, but in the doctor’s waiting room.

Like Jesus said, “Forgive them, for they know not what they do.” They truly do not know.

Your instinctive and abiding Love for your child allows for insight into what is happening. Please follow your instincts. God has given them to you for a reason. And that reason always points to His abundant Love for you and your child.

Your child is perfection,
as are all of God’s children.

Please remove your children from all substances that tarnish the Will of God. What is truly needed is the abundant Love of our Lord that flows through you. That is all your children will ever need.

“The point,
is for beauty.
Simplistic, joyous beauty;
complicated, twisted beauty
the beauty of courage,
the beauty of loss.
For if there is a Something Else out there,
it is surely hidden
among the beauty of this world.”

        The point is for beauty.

A BAYLOR UNIVERSITY professor made national headlines
for his simple act of kindness.

Katy Humphrey, a U.S. Marine and full-time college student, wife and mother, had her babysitter cancel on her at the last minute. Not one to miss class, her only option was to take her 4-month-old daughter, Millie, to class.

She’d hoped Millie wouldn’t be too disruptive to the class, but not long into the lecture, she became fussy.

But rather than shaming Katy or asking her leave class, the professor, Dr. Darryn Willoughby, just walked on over, picked her up, and kept on lecturing without missing a beat.

Millie was absolutely content in his arms for the rest of the class. “I didn’t want Katy to feel uncomfortable, because there was nothing to feel uncomfortable about,” says Willoughby, an associate professor of health, human performance and recreation and director of Baylor’s Exercise and Biochemical Nutrition Laboratory. “Taking care of others in a time of need and when it is not a time of need, just loving and caring about others – that’s God’s purpose.”

What a great example of the caring community at Baylor! I know. I attended Baylor for four years, graduating with the degree Doctor of Education in 1977. I experienced such Love and compassion from everyone, everyday. I cannot recommend a University more highly than Baylor University.
