Birthday Of The Children's Children's Children
GROUND ZER0, New York, N.Y.--Mar.
20, 2004 -- Each day thousands of new children are born.
These are the children of the future, the progeny of the Children's
The current world population is 6,355,321,181
and growing. Daily, more than 150,000 new babies are born
throughout the world.

Thirty-three years ago on this date, one of those children of the
future born was our second daughter.
She is a Sentinel of Vigilance.
She works with
young people and warns them against the Beast of Drug Terror
She packs two
9mm Glocks and hunts down drug Terrorists for a federal law
enforcement agency. Her specialty today is working
with young people and warning them about how the Beast of Drug Terror
can slip into their lives and mangle their minds, their hopes and
dreams in a similar way that a Terrorist suicide bomber might appear
on their doorstep some night and pull the explosive cord, shattering
the brain full of holes.
We often think the War on
Terrorism is about the battlefields of Iraq, or the mangled bodies of
innocent passengers on a Madrid train, or the collapse of our World
The War on
Terrorism is being waged in classrooms
True Terrorism is
anything that threatens the future security of our Children's
Children's Children, from the lack of health care, to ineffective
education programs, to a society filled with drug and emotional abuse
of our most precious assets--the children.
I am proud my daughter stands up to the
Beast of Terror. Daily she puts her life on the line, going face
to face with the Beast's servants who treasure the drugs that pollute
minds and the money it generates more than any moral or ethical
boundaries that tell them they are Terrorists, infecting the
bloodstream of their country as surely as if they were slipping poison
into the main water supply.
I am proud my
daughter stands up to the Beast of Terror
years ago our daughter was born. She didn't have a gun
strapped on her hip, and her goal at that moment wasn't to hunt down
the "bad guys" or spread a net of information to the young people that
drugs destroy the mind and spirit as well as the body.
She was born of Hope and Dreams, as
all children. My wife and I wished upon her the best
of life's offerings, as all parents seek for their children.
Her choice was to be a TerrorHunter.
She tracks her Beast of Terror down with teams of other TerrorHunters,
plowing the road clear of threats to the Children's Children's
Children, for the ultimate victim of drugs is the child who suffers
from the the implosion of society when drugs whirl around the child's
life, robbing him or her of a mother, a father, a chance for a happy,
I thought about my daughter's
birthday present this morning and realized the greatest gift I could
give her was a Thank You for dedicating her life to the pursuit of the
Beast of Drug Terror.
birthday gift I can offer is a Salute and a Thank You to both
recently married a man who retired from a similar profession and is
now completing his teaching degree. He will
infiltrate the classrooms and share with the children in school the
fruits of knowledge, and feed them hopes and belief in the future no
matter what the trials of the present may be.
They are a team now, my daughter and
her husband. They both are Sentinels of Vigilance,
fighting Terrorism in their own particular ways. One seeks
to drive Beast of Ignorance away, the other to enlighten and inform as
well as hunt and capture the Beast of Drugs.
What do you give people who
give their lives for others?
Besides a Thank You, I suppose
the greatest gift I can offer is a Sentinel of Vigilance Salute, and a
reminder that all the Children's Children's Children thank them for
their honorable service.
