How about you pay attention. Course maybe if the baby was shaped like a cell phone (they never seemRead More to forget those).

Already this summer there are far too many incidents of children and pets being left to die in hotRead More cars. Make a statement. Be alert. Let others know that this negligence is unacceptable. Buy a shirt, form a team, grab your friends and volunteer some time to do a car check the next time you are in a hot parking lot. Bring a hammer or crowbar just in case. This is a two tier project. First, preorder your t-shirt, tank top or hoody at http://teespring.com/windowbreaker T-shirt sales goal = 50 shirts in 20 days. For those who not familiar with teespring. com, pre-order your shirt on reserve. When the goal of 50 shirts is met or exceeded, shirts will be shipped to you by the company. If the goal is not met, the order is cancelled and no money is charged to you or your credit card. Proceeds from shirt sales will be reinvested to purchase bumper stickers that will be available locally and online. Bumper stickers will spread the message to a greater audience and remind the ignorant that we are paying attention - even if they are not! It is our moral obligation to protect those who cannot protect themselves. There comes a time when we are called to act. The time to act is now before another victim headlines the news. Will you choose to be part of the answer? I did. I ordered my shirt last night. Join this worthwhile cause TODAY! Please share

Great idea and kudos to this kid who invented this but this poor kid is in for a rude awakening whenRead More some moron tries to sue him because he put it in his car and it broke or fell off and the person didn't get reminded that his baby was in the car and it died. Sorry but this is the society we have raised!

As a fellow member of the Duluth Historical Society, I can say without reservation that Judy WilsonRead More is one of the most hardworking and dedicated citizens of our community. She works countless volunteer hours at Duluth's history museum at the Strickland House to ensure that our city's history is preserved for future generations. Hats off to you, Judy, for all that you do. Your work does not go unnoticed. You're a rare gem.

Kathryn exemplifies what a true public service is all about. Both her parents Mr. Calvin and Ms.Read More Kate, as well as her sisters Ann Odum and Margaret Andrews all have had an impact on the lives of people in Gwinnett and the surrounding area for decades. Their success can be directly attributed to the friendships and personal relationships that come from a commitment to values and support of those that seek to make a difference in the community. Along the way they harvested life's greatest reward, a full life of purpose that is gained only through hard work and sacrifice. The truly great accomplish good results by lifting up and recognizing the good in all people and galvanizing it to a greater purpose.
