“Anytime, Anywhere, Anyone” is now where we are in the U.S. regarding firearm related child and adolescent deaths.
The sole purpose of this social media initiative is to ask those who care for children- pediatricians, nurses, pediatric hospital administrators and all those additional health care leaders who are committed to protecting our children to step up NOW.
“We are guilty of many errors and many faults, but our worst crime is abandoning the children, neglecting the foundation of life. Many of the things we need can wait. The child cannot. Right now is the time his bones are being formed, his blood is being made and his senses are being developed.
To him we cannot answer “Tomorrow”. His name is “Today”.”
In this month dedicated to bullying prevention we will start the peaceful, determined revolution to protect our children. Pediatric and adolescent health care providers will be asked to serve on the front lines.
