How can we inspire just one local city neighborhood or small town to make a commitment to assist all parents so that every infant in that neighborhood can be nurtured and safeguarded through the first five years of life. So that all children in that neighborhood or small town can have an abundance of resilience and be ACE-free as possible. What would be essential? What is already happening in communities that could be a component of a comprehensive effort? This group is for people to share best…See More

Hi, Pamela: Thank you for such an interesting overview of your interest in ACEs! You may be interested in connecting with Barbara Stern in Sacramento and Gladys Richardson in Tucson, AZ, (and Maine in the summer). Gladys started a Primary Prevention group on the network. Click on the groups tab and you'll find it.
And I didn't know that Lexington had such an august Buddhist organization. I'll look around the SGI web site. Thanks for sending it.
Hi, Pamela. Welcome to the ACEs Too High Network. Thanks for joining! You're near the city where I spent most of my growing-up years: Lexington. In high school, we played hooky to go shopping in Louisville.
Will you write a sentence or two describing your interest in ACEs?
You can reply here, and I'll include it in the ongoing roundup of responses. Or you can post an introduction yourself, as some others have done (you can find those on the main page in the blog posts). It's easy to post an introduction -- just go to "My Page" (in the top navigation bar). Be sure to click on "blog post" at the top of the open box, put in a title, and then start typing in the box below. If you have any questions, please let me know.
And if you want to replace that ubiquitous blue head with your photo, just go to the top right of the page where you'll see a white box with your name at the top. Click on "Settings", a line at the bottom of a white box. And at the top of the page that opens, you'll see a place to upload a photo.
Also, you'll see that some people have also posted their photo on the photo page, which is a great idea. (You can also do that from "My Page".) You can even add a text block with more information about your work or avocation.
And don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about how to use this network.
