POSTED BY DARRELL YOUNG ON SOCIAL MEDIA
“I hiked 16 miles to Larch Mountain in the Columbia River Gorge and unfurled the “Protect Every Child” banner
to raise awareness to people around the world to protect every child from abuse.”
LARCH (Larix europaea) – the larch is one of the few conifers which sheds its needles in the winter. It plays an important role in Sami (Lapp) and Siberian mythology where it takes the place of the ash as the World-tree. Their shamans use larch wood to rim their ceremonial drums. The smoke from burning larch is said to ward off evil spirits. Larch may be used for protection and to induce visions.
Protect Every Child agrees with Darrell! We need to shed the stigma of child abuse, especially child sexual abuse, which is a problem around the world. We need to raise our voices in a never-ending, oft-repeated cry, drumming it into the ears of all around us that this travesty upon the innocence of childhood must end now! May our united public statements rise, like smoke, and drive away this evil plague, so that our vision of the protection of every child might become a reality.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Sign the new Petition:
Climb a mountain, hilltop or driveway. Unfurl a banner and share it.
Come to the March for the Children on October 5, 2019 in Salt Lake City.
This is the big one. If we have 5,000 marchers, the national media will be all over it.
Institutions will be warned. Huge awareness will be raised.
Children will be protected. Past victims will take solace.
