11 Dec Women Against ISIS!
By Kay Hill
It is my belief that we women can be one of the biggest factors in the fight against ISIS. Our wonderful troops are fighting on one end, but we women can fight on the other end too — before our youth join ISIS! We can use one of the same means that ISIS does — social media. But it begins in our devoted love and each child’s recognition of their irreplaceable purpose in our family.We as women bring into the world gorgeous wonderful children! It is my belief that there is no child that was born to fail! Let’s just think of some of the reasons people, especially young people, have joined ISIS:Not feeling like anyone cares,
Feeling isolated from the world,
Mad at the world,
Mad at the government,
Mad at society.
Moms, grandmas, and aunts can fight all of these issues. We can help our beautiful children know that they are the most important thing in the world to us, they have great potential, and they can accomplish meaningful things even if they do not have money or fame.
Clubs, after school teams and activities help a lot, but none of these even come close to the influence of a mom on her child, a grandmother on her grandchild, or an aunt on her niece or nephew.
Some might point at some good moms who have children who are struggling. That is true, but many a struggling child has gained strength to overcome because of the support and love of his/her family. The vast majority will grow to be wonderful, productive citizens if they know that their moms and families have faith in them and they are of utmost importance to them.
Moms, grandmothers, and aunts know within themselves what they need to do to help their children know how important they are to them. Do what you know in your heart will be best for your children. They are your most important accomplishment in your life.
