Sleepy.

Sneezy.

Happy.

Bashful.

Grumpy.

Dopey.

Doc.

You name it.

We’ve all been it.

Sometimes all in one day.

As for Snow White, that’s another story.

And what a story it is.

What magic.

What wonder.

What fun.

The innocence and imagination captured by those Seven Dwarfs.

But not all childhoods are innocent.

Or full of imagination and delight.

Some are full of abuse and neglect.

Committed by adults.

Often their own parents.

Or kinfolk.

To experience something different than abuse is to walk into another world.

Not unlike Disneyland, the best of the best.

A true Magic Kingdom.

Volunteering holds the key to another kingdom.

It’s called CASA.

Court Appointed Special Advocates (a national organization).

For children.

Where a caring adult speaks up in court on behalf of the child.

Bringing an end to a painful situation.

Hopefully.

Review.

Research.

Visit with all involved.

Especially the kiddos.

Recommend.

Remove the child from danger.

Reunite the child with relatives.

Resolve.

Repair.

Restore.

Here it’s called Bluebonnet CASA.

Serving Mason, Menard, McCulloch, and Kimble Counties.

Based in Mason at (325) 347-6474.

Please volunteer.

And help a child go from hurt to hope.

What greater Magic Kingdom could there be.

That’s Mason.
