50 million people in the U.S.-one in four children-don’t know where their next meal is coming from, despite our having the means to provide nutritious, affordable food for all Americans. One in four American children are "food insecure" - they don't know where their next meal is coming from
Did you know a fast food hamburger cost less than a peach? The reason people are going hungy is not because of a shortage of food it's because of poverty. Naturally for those living in poverty, the idea is to get the most amount of food for the least amount of money The problem isn't about "food stamp queens", or people taking advantage of the system. If another country was doing this to our kids we'd be at war! Help us do something about it. Charity is great, but will NOT end hunger! Call your congress members and insist they make this a priority. Money is wasted on education programs if our children are going to school hungry, they will not be able to concentrate!! What will you do about it?
If you'd like to be a part of the efforts to help this cause please let us know firstname.lastname@example.org
Locate then contact your Congress members to let them know this is not American. http://www.govtrack.us/congress/members/VA

President Barack Obama signed 23 new executive orders on Wednesday giving tools to those he believes can help curb gun violence in the country.
He highlighted four of them during a news conference:
He also called on Congress to pass three specific proposals:
Join the conversation: What are we going to do about gun control?
President Obama was joined on stage by four children from around the country who had written letters to him after the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary. He says they were representatives of the many messages he’s received in the last month.
One child said she’s not really scared for her own safety but the safety of others, like her siblings. Another wrote: “I think there should be some changes. We should learn what happened at Sandy Hook. I feel really bad.”

“This is our first task as a society: Keeping our children safe,” said Obama. “This is how we will be judged. And their voices should compel us to change.”
He promised to do his part and challenged Congress and the American people to do the same:
“I will put everything I’ve got into this and so will [Vice President] Joe [Biden]. but I tell you, the only way we can change is if the American people demand it.”
Handgun SafetyHandgun Safety
Safe and secure storage of your firearm is one of your most important responsibilities. You must always secure your firearm and ammunition so that they are not accessible to children or other unauthorized persons.
Basic Safety RulesBasic Safety Rules

Always safely store and secure your firearm
Always lock and store bullets in separate location.
Make sure children do not have access to the gun safe/cabinet keys
Always treat every firearm as if it were loaded
Always keep you firearm pointed in a safe direction
Never place your finger inside the trigger guard unless you intend to fire.
Never use alcohol or drugs before or while shooting.
Safety TrainingSafety Training
All gun owners should understand how a firearm operates before handling it.
In Tennessee, all applicants are required to submit proof of the successful completion of a department approved Handgun Safety Course within the past six (6) months. Call toll free 1-866-849-3548 to find out more information on handgun schools, locations and contact information.
Handguns and ChildrenHandguns and Children
There are about 200 million firearms in the U.S., so even if you do not own a gun, there's a good chance that your children will encounter one someday. Your children's friends might live in homes with guns, or your children might find one that a criminal has discarded.
In 2005, there were 77 firearm deaths of children and teens in Tennessee, including 22 suicides and 7 accidents.
If You Do Not Own A Gun:
Teach your children these steps to follow if they encounter a gun:
On average every day, 14 American children under the age of 20 are killed and many more are wounded by guns. In 1992, firearms surpassed motor vehicles as the number one cause of brain injury fatalities in the United States.
Hiding your gun is a good idea, but not good enough. Kids have a tendency to like to explore. Putting the gun out of reach only works until your kid learns to climb or use a ladder or stepping-stool. Don't make the mistake of thinking your child is too weak to use the gun.
