As I’ve posted previously, I volunteer as a Guardian Ad Litem and advocate against child abuse and neglect. In our juvenile courtroom, GALs sit at the middle table of the bar area, alongside the GAL Program attorney, to field questions from the Juvenile Court judge and speak on behalf a child. Recently, our GAL Program director asked what it meant to sit at the middle table. My response is below:
“Being a part of the team at the middle table in the juvenile court-room means using my life and my voice for a purpose bigger than myself. I truly do believe that “children are the messages that we send to a time we will not see.” (John W. Whitehead) Sitting at the table means having a hand in positively impacting a child, a message, for the future.”
Whatever your passion, I pray that you are able to follow it and make a difference in pursuing it. Tootles!
