Our number one national security priority is the safety of all kids from the terrorists they face within our own borders. Kid Protection Network is a grass-roots effort to mobilize the nation to work together to insure all children are safe from the terrorists they face within our own borders: sex offenders, child abductors, gangs, drug dealers, cyber terrorists. One person can make all the difference to help a child in distress.
The Power of One KPN encourages all to get to know the issues the kids face in their communities from such terrorists by connecting with law enforcement at the local level to develop an action plan to stop such terrorists before they strike down another priceless child. Knowledge is empowerment. KPN recognizes the importance of taking off the blinders to such terrorism being inflicted on our children and making it our business to know the issues, what to look for, how to recognize such terrorists in our communities combined with the power of technology in the form of a cell phone to call 911 if you see a child in distress. KPN components are simple: Street Signs, Children Missing In Action desktop flag, Children Missing In Action baseball caps. You can and do make a difference. America's children need our uncompromised support to work together for the safety of all children from those who relentlessly do them harm. In doing so, we can embrace our military family taking on terrorists like Al Qaeda and others overseas telling them we got their back while they are overseas putting their lives on the line for our safety from terrorism like that of 9/11. America's children deserve nothing less. The Village Has Work To Do.
The two most important words that drives loving, caring, compassionate, people of all races working together for the most noble mission a community could ever undertake:
Safe Streets For All Kids!
Here is what KPN is now and has been for many years.
There are three leaders in a community that are key contacts to insure your efforts have the best chance to work: Chief of Police, Mayor, and Superintendent of Schools. Being in compliance with all protocols for posting signs on city streets and state highways is critical. Public Works in a given community would post the signs in areas all area would have the most impact.
Grass-roots movements are street-level everyday folks kind of projects and KPN is no exception. No compensation for the work, all volunteer for those who have worked for KPN to the folks in the communities who have taken the initiative to bring a KPN presence into their neighborhood, their community.
The Lions Club bought the first 50 signs for the two communities our regional school district covered. The signs started going up on bus routes, parks, downtown, neighborhood streets and the entrance points to schools and points of entry driving into a given community.
The KPN sign speaks a universal language: We will educate ourselves to the issues of crime our kids face at the local level. We will focus our attention on the streets in a way that enables each of us to see the community with open eyes being especially vigilant to those possibilites that could impact the safety of ALL the community's kids and if a child is in distress or worse use the cellphone to call 911 to mobilize help for that child in their critical moments of need.
