Let's Do Something

First this: please pray for Ethan Powell, a baby who was diagnosed with leukemia shortly after being born. They're doing a new treatment process on him and we're still waiting for its complete success. He has had both good and bad days, but lately, he has been having seizures and seems to be in pain. Have faith, along with the rest of us, that he will be completely healed. In the interim, be a prayer warrior for him.

If you have an Applebee's near you, you might want to join a nation-wide (US) nurse-in/out on September 8 to protest the unfair treatment that Kentucky mom Brooke Ryan and her baby received while they were having lunch in a branch on Nicholasville Road. The manager had insisted that Brooke nurse her baby under a blanket because some other customer had found the sight of a mother breastfeeding in public offensive. You'll find more information about the story as well as the steps being taken to make sure that a breastfeeding-friendly policy is adopted and implemented not only at Applebee's, but in all businesses, here. Whether in the US or anywhere else in the world, nobody should ever be forced to have his/her dinner under a blanket. Should you be interested in the September 8 nurse in/out, an egroup has been set up for those who want to participate or help out.
