You're allowed. . .

I would like to publicly thank Tim Shriver for putting into words (so eloquently) what I've wanted to say for years (I just didn't quite know how to say it):

Tim Shriver to Stephen Colbert on March 30th 2011:

I didn't say you cannot use the word: I don't want to be a cop, I want to be a teacher. you're allowed to be humiliating, degrading & hurtful. I'm allowed to petition you to at least recognize what you say & be aware of the option you have to stop....I'm asking you awareness for a forgotten population. This is a campaign to save America's kids ~ Tim Shriver
Thanks for being such a powerful role model for the rest of us as we live advocacy daily for our children.
