      A Better World

The media has become one of the most powerful influencers in society, especially to children.  According to the American Psychiatric Association, by the age of 18, a U.S. youth will have seen 16,000 simulated murders and 200,000 acts of violence through the media.  In addition to violence – sex, drugs and smoking is also pervasive in the media, and is negatively influencing young lives. 

Make a commitment everyday to spend less time in front of the TV, and get outside with your family! Go to a park, talk a walk, sit on the porch, play cards, do chores, etc.
