Change Through pain

Change through pain

The family is the most important unit in our society in the past and still today. When we look at any systems, especially those that help family through protection of children, such as SRS and other private and state agencies. There has to be true check and balance, meaning we must have a way of assuring that it purpose (safety of Children) is being done with out bias, prejudice, and malice in the system. In all systems there is corruption of that system, although it may be the few that corrupt it, this do have effect and affect on many life’s. The fact that in family unit our lives are connective to each other, not only in our mediate family but our extend family, i.e. Cousin, Aunt & Uncle, Grandparents, Community, Church, and other social activities we are in involve with. There are times we will hear about family that go through these pain of changes that tear the family unit apart, and we believe that these are isolated indent and no real connection of what we hear, see, even read about from time to time. I believe that the real problems are we are not connective, or we don’t communicate/view these issues as interconnect, so situation seam to be far and few in between each indent. In Wichita KS, as in other cities and states there are groups trying to connect these major issues, but I believe that we have a few groups representative of the few, and some of these are radical groups. We don’t know or understand how many relatives are affected by lack of support. If we don’t have a voice we can’t be hear. How do we effectively change the cost of the life’s so disrupted? It is stated, “when the pain of not changing become greater then the pain of change, then people will change”. When we look at Kinship/ relatives rising family member, where there is no voice for what they are going to be facing. Families are dealing with just how to manage their new lives, and some are going through the court systems, then you add on the finances that soon follow. We have put stress on the family unit and to point of failure, and the pain that become almost unbearable. To many families have given up and believe that it is hopeless, that we must take it no matter what. Question: Has that pain become some much that we are will to make change, or do we need to still suffer?
