Nancy Carroll is a PAS mother who has the leadership instincts of Gandhi and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. She has experienced more than her fair share of brutal abuse and hard knocks, but she keeps rolling. Literally. After her leg was shattered, she got in her wheelchair and kept on rolling to effectively bring the quest of PAS mothers to the attention of the country’s leaders.
Some of her colleagues, however, appear to be jealous of her success. They have bullied her into taking down her impressive Rights for Mothers web site. But, Ms. Carroll continues her work on Mothers of Lost Children.
Mothers of Lost Children are again sponsoring a silent Mother’s Day Vigil outside the White House. I have been told that a rebel group wants to disrupt this event, and I hope they rethink this strategy. No one in a position of power will tolerate for long people whose main interest is yowling and howling and engaging in “poor me” control dramas. There are too many demands on these people’s time and energy for it to be drained away by people who are more interested in raising hell than sincerely finding a viable solution.
If you are able to get to the Washington, D.C. area on Mother’s Day, I hope you will attend this event and give your support to mothers whose hearts are breaking because litigation abuse prevents them from seeing their beloved children.
