Light a Million Candles

Now that dad is going well, it's time we focus our energies on other endeavours. I tag all of you to try and tag as many people as you can to this cause. I think we all should...

The innocent victims of Internet child abuse cannot speak for themselves.

But you can.

With your help, we can eradicate this evil trade.

We do not need your money.

We need you to light a candle of support.

We're aiming to light at least One Million Candles by December 31, 2006.

This petition will be used to encourage governments, politicians, financial institutions, payment organisations, Internet service providers, technology companies and law enforcement agencies to eradicate the commercial viability of online child abuse.

They have the power to work together. You have the power to get them to take action.

Please light your candle at lightamillioncandles.com or send an email of support to light@lightamillioncandles.com.

Together, we can destroy the commercial viability of Internet child abuse sites that are destroying the lives of innocent children.

I think it would be better for people to visit a nursing home or children's home nearest to them and spend an hour there. Just one hour. Or even a 5 minutes. It might convince them to give a bit of themselves to those who have so little, instead of always wanting and taking. It's much better than "lighting a candle" on a website. No offence, that's just my opinion :)

The westerners like petitions. It seems that they believe that they is strength in numbers (even virtual ones). But child pornography is not about the supplier but the consumer.

There must be someone buying this before anyone can sell them.

I hate to quote the WWF but its a fact. When the buying stop, so will the killing. In this case, the raping.

I agree with both of these dudes. No point in internet petitions but if we had more public awareness then that's different. Signing petitions may be one of the ways of passing on the messages but aiya.. lazy la.

*shrug* Not saying that you have to. But not doing anything is just as bad. Even if you don't do it, there's no harm in spreading the word, even if you don't believe it to be the best way to help solve the problem. Anyway, to each his/her own.
