Good People & People of Faith,

This message has some serious thoughts and some crazy thoughts and
probably some of your thoughts on reform methods.  Most of us are
pretty 'tame' and we would never "HURT SOMEONE", how barbarous!
Another bunch see "nonviolence" and get sick, look at America, how it
was founded -- armed conflict!  Sometimes you have to fight for what
you believe in.

1. Your FEEDBACK - nonviolence doesn't work!
2. Your FEEDBACK - being erased from my child's life -scary!

But first, before the FEEDBACK, what does AKidsRight.Org stand for? 
NonViolent Action -- which is NOT 'nonviolence' and is NOT 'hurting
someone'.  It is different!  Check http://www.AKidRight.Org/civil.htm

In brief we have held up the ideal that people willing to demonstrate:
Faith, Love, and Personal Sacrifice can be the means of effective
social change. That Parents can promote Family Law reform by

1) Faith in a loving God,
2) Love for their children, former spouses, and other "brothers and
sisters", and
3) Willingness to make Personal Sacrifice, 

NonViolent Action allows you to demonstrate through "unambiguous
physical action" the depth of your Faith and belief in your "cause." 
It is a positive demonstration of love given at sometimes tremendous
personal cost. 

"Pain that is not transformed will be transmitted" -- Fr. Richard Rohr

...I'm a graduate of the Air Force Academy and a former Air Force
Pilot. I quite agree with you that just being 'passive' will not
accomplish anything, and that quiet little parades and lobbying and
(even email like yours) -- isn't going to be enough to change the
system.  Even if you swear more!...

We do need to ACT, and it is going to take courage and it is going to
take sacrifice and it is going to take Faith, but unlike a shooting War
-- it is not going to take violence against others.  We need to
convince people that we really love our kids and they mean everything
in the world to us.  I am not about 'nonviolence', I am about
NonViolent Action, the stuff Martin Luther King did and Gandhi did in
India -- and you know what?  It did work.

Unlike yourself, I've got an obligation to ACT even if I am the only
one.  Everybody always wants to wait for someone else because they
don't have confidence in themselves.  Now maybe you want folks to join
and break some windows; or maybe go big time and blow something up!
That is really going to convince me how much you love your kids --
let's hurt some other parents, families -- and make them lose mothers,
fathers, children - after all, they deserved it!!!!!

David, I need people who are willing to join in the effort. Willing to
feel handcuffs and go to jail, because they love their kids.  Their
willing to peacefully sacrifice their freedom and their jobs to show
how strong that love is.  Take the time to read about NonViolent
Action at http://www.AKIdsRight.Org/civil.htm

... The system didn't care about you, and when it came to your kids,
you could sit in the BACK OF THE BUS!  I've got plenty of anger, maybe
even as much as you, probably more, because I'm actually doing
something. This system is so bad it turns us into animals and we
attack each other. It's a shame.

I'm going to share your message with the folks on the list -- so
please send me something back in reply -- and don't sugar coat it!

Thanks for the message.  I quite agree with you, that nonviolence ---
i.e. just talking, writing, and doing safe things (sort of like your
blog -- just kidding?).  Is not going to change the system and how
people see parents/children.

The talk is good (even your blog), but there has to be action.  That
is why I use NonViolent Action, taking physical action that
demonstrates voluntary self sacrifice for what you believe in.

I think the history we have at the site,
http://www.AKidsRight.Org/civil.htm -- show that it does work and can
overcome great prejudices -- which is what we have to here.

Bob, I'm a former Air Force pilot, please don't tell me what being a
man is, or to go down fighting. Unless of course you plan on
practicing what you preach?

Judges are not some evil dark lord....... they are just people with
jobs like you and I.  Sometimes we do our jobs well, sometimes not so
well.  It just happens that "we" allowed laws to be passed that gave
these folks almost complete control over our family lives.  That needs
to be changed.

Sorry if my tone is a bit harsh.  I did check your blog out, and it
just 'screeches'.  We need to turn all that pent up frustration &
injustice into useful action.

I agree with you about the pointlessness of suicide.  It is a selfish
act. Something done out of desperation and certainly with no Faith.
My motivations are quite different here and I certainly hope for a
different result.  I want them to take full responsibility for me
after violating every fundamental right I have and just throwing me in

Well, I would not be so strong worded.  I have to assume the Judge is
trying to be a good person and trying to do what he thinks is 'right'.
I can pretty easily 'apologize' for him.  The case load is very high,
god knows there isn't time to really examine each case, my first goal
is taking care of the child, court orders do have to be obeyed or
there is anarchy.  Just because this guy is spending a lot of money on
travel, I can't excuse him, or that would open the door to everyone
else.  Things aren't perfect, I have to nail this guy, to keep
integrity in the system overall.....

Now, this is flawed seriously. Obviously, justice doesn't occur in
general -- it occurs for each individual person.  But I really think
that's how a lot of 'them' feel....

I've had a lot of jail experience.  In my other actions I am the model
prisoner since my goal is just to show self sacrifice by volunteering
my freedom, I don't have any issues with the police, judges, etc.. in
the criminal system.

This is entirely different.  I'm being pulled off the street and into
jail.  I need to make a strong response.  It is an issues of Faith,
http://www.AKidsRight.ORg/civil.htm -- that voluntary self-sacrifice
is always meaningful.

I have read some detailed history on Gandhi, and of course, at the
beginning, there were not hundreds of thousands, but just a few. I'm
care to say "NonViolent Action" -- which is really Faith based as
practiced by King and Gandhi (most recently).  Thoreau was more civil
disobedience.  He was happy to be a name-caller.  We have history at
http://www.AKidsRight.Org/civil_back.htm -- everything starts with

No, I really think you are wrong here.  Not when they started.  Again,
I read a pretty critical Biography of King and what happened in the
50's -- in a Faith filled manner those people sacrificed and suffered
for what they believed in.  I think that is pretty sound historical
fact.  I do agree that by the 60's the movement had grown and
splintered and then other factors also came into play.  Again, the
link above has a bibliography.

No, this is not a War.  I'm a pretty well trained military officer and
this has nothing to do with War -- the delivery of physical violence
in an attack upon an opponent.

What we are trying to change is Injustice caused by Uncaring people
and ourselves.  Where were 'we' when all these silly laws were being
passed? The vast majority of us didn't care about reform till the
'hens came home to roost!'  Then it became our issue.

You are right about the power of a butterflies wings.  That is the
power of NonViolent Action to change people's hearts. We need the
nation to see us as loving parents, by ACTING AS LOVING PARENTS -- not
commandos!  Show by sacrifice the love you have for your kids.

Okay, thanks for the words of support.  I will be having some people
locally to at least know where I am.

2. Your Stories - being erased from my child's life.

I think you know how I feel about that.  I'm sure they said the same
thing about segregation and how entrenched it was and such a mess. We
need to make the public see us as caring, loving parents -- the same
way the public needed to see blacks are real human beings...

That is why I like NonViolent Action, I don't know if you have ever
taken the time to actually read the stuff at our site, but I think you
will find it useful.  http://www.AKidsRight.Org/civil.htm

We make public demonstration of loving sacrifice as parents.  No
anger, no yelling, just 'we love our kids'.  That is what I am trying
outside Clinton's offices, and that is what I will be saying when I
noncooperate with Jail.  No big statements against the Judge, etc.....

The only problem for us know, versus the 50's is Faith.  Those folks
had a strong Faith back then -- we are pretty different now.  How many
people are willing to voluntarily put themselves into more misery and
not even have the satisfaction of calling someone else a jerk!?

I'm so sorry about your son.  I had thought you had some contact with
him?  They really tried to erase you from his life.  All because you
wouldn't give him drugs -- just amazing.

How old was he when you last saw him?  I always had the impression he
was getting into his teen years?  I could see if he was only 8 or 9,
they might actually succeed in making you just a 'memory'.

Diane, that is tragedy.  I can't think of anything worse.  I know you
have done more than 99% of the people out there, but letter and email
and lobbying doesn't do justice to the great wrong that has been done
to you and your son.  Great Action is required motivated by Love,
Faith, & Sacrifice.  Maybe the stuff on NonViolent Action will give
you some ideas... I can't believe the system is just trying to 'erase'

Yes, I know what you mean about being 'self employed' -- then they
just assume you are cheating, don't have to prove it, and set your
income level at whatever they like.

Wow, I don't know how you do it Anthony.  That must just tear your
heart out everyday, especially when she won't even talk to.  What a
tragedy.  That is the one think I am ever so thankful for with
Domenic, my former spouse was also trying to alienate him, but he & I
were very always very close.  Now he is 13, and it is so great to get
a hug and hear 'Dad, I love you" I certainly hope & pray that day will
come for you.  Keep the door open to your daughter and keep the Faith!

My son has a pretty determined personality and isn't easy to sway.
Some kids are a little different and that makes it tough.

I can agree with your frustration.  At times you just want to explode,
in many ways I can understand what being 'raped' is.  Before you take
action, I really encourage you to go through the stuff at our site on
NonViolent Action: http://www.AKidsRight.Org/civil.htm

With a little planning, you can do a lot; especially if you are not
afraid of hand-cuffs.  I would really like some folks to help me focus
on Sen. Clinton and getting her to meet with parents.  Maybe we can do
something together.
