Father’s Day is a precious season for me. This Father’s Day, I’d like to share with you an amazing tribute that was given for my friend Russ Werch by his daughter Melodi. She wrote this:
One of last year’s breakout television series was a drama called "This is Us." The show averaged nearly 15 million viewers each week and broke video-on-demand records of 38 million views. So what made this show so interesting? Well, everyone has their favorite character or parts of the show, but some would say it is how the story is told. Much like the popular television show "Lost," This Is Us uses a non-linear story telling format, which begs the audience to ask one important question over and over again: "How did they get here?"
For more than 20 years, CASA of Northwest Arkansas has been serving kids right here in our community who need someone to be an advocate on their behalf. Kids who are abused or neglected face many things that are hard for them to process. CASA volunteers come along side of those kids during a time when they most need someone to look out for them. Advocates help make sure the kids get to dental and medical appointments. They make sure that their home environment is safe. They check in with the school to see if there are any needs. Basically they serve as a voice for each child to make sure that the court orders for each child are being followed.
