“NOT WITH MY CHILD! — You Don't!” is the OPERATION LOOKOUT's anti-predator call-to-action, and a year-round expression of outrage against the rising cases of abducted children in our nation.
This is a call for you to join the many voices and unite in the fight against child abuse and abduction by shouting out “No more!” to the pedophile, the sexual predator, the molester, the abductor.
Each year, over 800,000 children are reported missing. Daily, thousands of children are battered, abused, and neglected. As a nation we must protect our country's future – our children. They are our greatest gift – their safety is our biggest responsibility! The anthem and battle cry of every mother, father, legal guardian, teacher, grandparent and friend must be: "Keep your hands off of our children!"
Everyday we learn of another news story about child abduction and we wonder what we can do all by ourselves? And — how can we do it fast enough? Today's technology and combined efforts of your watchful eyes, roadside blocks, neighborhood watch, massive phone banks for instant communications, Amber Alerts, and email “E”lerts broadcast, all come together in an attempt to thwart and to prevent the victimization of a missing child.
When innocent children vanish from their homes and playgrounds, the world responds with its heart, and it cares. We are truly blessed and encouraged when we see how many of you give again and again so that children can be found, loved, nourished and nurtured once again by the parents who seek them.
Nothing should lead any of us to believe a missing child is a safe child. We simply can't afford to have such predisposition or preconception. Better we find the child, reunite the family, bring justice to the forefront of the situation, and address the issues at hand, than to assume they are always safe.
What can we do?
At OPERATION LOOKOUT®, we are working tirelessly to make sure that our children and our communities are safer by providing you valuable information and resources. We are determined for the abuser and sexual predator to get the message – NOT WITH MY CHILD! YOU DON'T. We are leading the way for a national campaign, whereby every politician, educator, community leader, and you will have a public outcry against the predator, the thief of childhood.
Today, with our society's moral foundation in decline, we must move quickly to get this strong message to the lawmakers of our land, especially, as it pertains to granting early releases to long-term imprisoned child abductors and molesters. We must continue to raise our voices until the political climate creates Federal changes that prohibit early releases of child offenders and killers, regardless of good behavior, or what country in the world they live in.
There are many ways all of us can help missing kids and their families. And, we must also do all we can to protect our nation's children from falling prey to those who want to do them harm by influencing the enactment of tougher laws, and encourage stricter enforcement of those already on the books. By working together, when every minute matters, we can keep our children safe, our communities more secure.
An old, but wise adage is: 'If not now, when? If not us, who?' On behalf of Operation Lookout and our missing children and their families, thank you for your participation in this urgent Call-to-Action.
