Shattered Lives: Guardian Angels Making an Impact

Taking positive action towards making lives better, safer, and working with communities is what the Guardian Angels are all about! “When you’re a Guardian Angel, you come across all types of people, often during the worst time of their lives: rapes, muggings, shootings, you name it. All types of people and every type of situation. But you learn how to comfort them, you learn how to say it’s going to be ok. Being an Angel makes you a better person, it opens you up to new ideas. When you talk with people about their problems, you’ll gain a greater awareness about the local communities and the high crime areas. And the more we know, the better we can help, and the better a community will respond.” Marcus “Strider” Dent is the Commander of the Baltimore Chapter of the Guardian Angels and the guest of the hour on Shattered Lives Radio. Listeners will learn not only how Marcus became …

Welcome To Peas In Their Pods

Every 40 seconds a child is reported missing in the United States. Under 45% are African American Children. With disturbing figures like these being reported, Janice Lowery and Gaetane Borders joined forces in 2007 and created an organization that would bring awareness to the problems facing families with missing children who, in some cases, did not meet the required criteria of the Amber Alert System.  They found a way to “bridge the gap” for those children and their families by creating the “Rilya Alert.” “We do not take the place of the Amber Alert System. We simply pick up where they leave off or never engage due to program criteria.” Volunteers across the internet can come together to gather information, interact and keep abreast of current cases at the Peas In Their Pods network on the Ning platform.  There you can join in discussions, offer help and find many who join together with one common goal, to help find the missing children. Each week Janice and Gaetane host a radio show on BlogTalk Radio to …
