Prevalent in the US is an aversion to commitment and marriage. A good 50% and more of our children are born with no marriage intact.   Consider that many living together never have children.  We are a nation struggling with unrest and low commitment.  A lack of giving value to family reflects a sort of a hopelessness in our future orientation.  Today is all about today.  What future?  Why invest in the next generation?  All about me.

SOLUM takes action every day.  We build life foundations and thinking skills in our most fractured families.  We invest in a better life forward by investing in lives.

 raysthoughtsYet, there are many who have a thirst and a heart for something different. A healthy 84% of those in their prime early marriage years (18-34) are either married (28%) or want to be (56%). http://www.gallup.com/poll/163802/marriage-importance-dropped.aspx   We want commitment. We want future generations.  Our young men and women have not given up regardless of the bad examples that have been set. We just don’t seem to know how to get there.

 SOLUM takes action.  We train parents and caregivers in parenting skills.

QUEBEC QUESTIONS 20140529Our legislatures have for the most part wrapped up their activity, budgets, changes to social recommendations, and tax work.  It isn’t pretty.  Lots of dissent.  I am thankful for the work these servants perform in trying to make sense of it all and bring communities into a productive and healthy stream.  Every year seems to get a little nastier, or is that just how it looks from the outside?  Government was never meant in the Land of Freedom to control the minds of the masses but simply to mirror them.  How do you like the mirror image?

SOLUM takes action.  Our RESILIENCY Youth and Family Camp is all about building healthy and safe futures for our youth.  LOGO

Family matters. Yes, family builds the future.  And, we need something different than our current experience.  2016 years ago, an angel opened a discussion with Zacharius.  He said, “You will have a son, John, and he will work to turn the hearts of the fathers to the child.”  400 years prior a prophet, Malachai, said the same solution would be needed or our lands would be cursed.  Jesus said the same, “I show you THE FATHER.” These all were pointing to relationship not religion and faith not form. In fact they all got in trouble with the religious leaders of the day.
Religion is not an answer. Healthy and safe relationships are an answer.  Government is not an answer.  Solid life foundations are an answer.  Demands for recognition and rights are not an answer.  Generations of greatness are an answer.

Yes, I do want you to give. We need it. Summer is here and people forget.  Give $25.  Give $250. Give $2500. Keep SOLUM in motion.  Stretch us to broader venues.  Lack of finances meant we closed Marietta and Moore this year.  In Gainesville, we will train double the number of probationers, have extended to include youth probationers and their families, and others in the community.  Other communities could benefit, but it takes $$.  I am training five community activists right now, who are ready to do more.  But without $$, they will be unable to move forward.

I want you to think.  I want you to examine.  I want you to take action in your sphere of influence to build a better world that is healthy and safe and provides a healthy and safe environment in which children can grow into healthy and safe adults, who produce children living a better life forward.  The power is in our hearts and minds and hands and finances.  Will you? Do it?
