No matter what you think about the verdict, Caylee is loved by all. She won't ever be forgotten. My hope is that everyone who is so upset and angered by Casey being found not guilty, will turn that negative energy into something positive.
Tons of children are abused every day in our country. Many more are hungry, uninsured, and living in poverty. Those at-risk children need our help. Each one of us could turn the energy from this past week into something good.
- Be a big brother or sister to a child who needs it
- Volunteer for CASA
- Volunteer in your local schools
- Become a foster parent
- Donate to your local food bank
- Volunteer at a local women's shelter or homeless shelter
The number one thing you can do though is to just keep your eyes open. Make friends with your neighbors and watch for the mom who might seem overstressed. Offer to help her out once in a while. We all need a break. Get to know your children's friends and talk to them. Let them know there are people who care about them.
Never be afraid to call CPS if you think a child is being abused. You could save a life.
Through all these things, we'll be remembering Caylee. That's the good that can come out of all this.
