Rock One Sock for Missing Children
This post is going to be short today. I am trying to spread awareness of a cause that is near and dear to my heart, the Rock One Sock for Missing Children Campaign.
As a parent and now grandparent, one of my biggest fears in life is anything happening to one of my children. I can not imagine the pain parents who do not know where their children are face every day.
As adults, I feel we all have the responsibility to ensure the safety and well-being of all children, not just our own. As adults, it is our job to support those who are fighting and dedicating their lives to bring children home where they belong and who work to keep our children safe.
If you know where your children are, be grateful. Hug them, love them, and keep them safe.

What is National Missing Children’s Day?
May 25, 1983 was the day proclaimed by President Ronald Reagan as National Missing Children’s Day. The day is dedicated to encourage parents, guardians, caregivers and other people who care about the well-being of children to make child safety a priority.
On this day, people dedicated to this cause are honored, and it reminds everyone that the effort to reunite missing children with their families needs to continue.
