Everyday in this country families are ripped apart by a system that breaks its own laws, defies its own mission statements and does so with almost total immunity. In many cases, it does so with the support of judges, lawyers, and mental health professionals. A major cause of the lack of accountability on the part of parents is not knowing they have rights, what they are, or more importantly how to enforce them. As a citizen of the United States and as humans who have been guaranteed certain rights, we all need to be aware of what they are and what they mean to each individual. We need to know our rights and how they are relevant in today’s world.
