I am guardian...


I am an advocate for children of abuse and neglect.
I am willing to stand outside the house of a child in the 
middle of the night so that child knows they are safe.
I will sit in the courtroom so that child can see 
friendly face as they have to testify against their abuser.
I will sit in the hospital for comfort and protection.
I will be there for a hug when that child needs one.
I am a guardian.

If seen I will put myself in harm's way to protect a child.
I am not alone.
There are many of us out there.
We are a band of brothers and sisters.
We are the guardians of the children.
I am a guardian. 

Why do I do this you ask?
Our children are meant to be loved.
To be taken care of.
To be able to rely on we adults to love them.
To be shown that family has each others backs.
I am a guardian.

The scaring affects from abuse doesn't end when the abuse stops
These scars yet most on the inside last a lifetime
The memories of what happens can stay with them forever.
Today I stand for those who can't stand alone.
Today I am a guardian. 

Don't let your silence drown out their cries

Be aware.
