I've Read UNSCRIPTED

One of my goals for 2017 is to fund a mission from a similar organization, called Operation Underground Railroad (OUR Rescue). They send in a team of former Special Forces guys to rescue kids that are enslaved in child sex trafficking. I am hoping to have the funds available sometime late this year to sponsor a mission (but you will never read about it in the news).I received my copy. Really liked it.
It's brief but to the point, and the language is simple for children to understand. Illustrations are good and colorful, which children like.
I think the challenge will be in trying to explain to small kids how it's not nice to bite someone in most circumstances, but it's ok to bite someone in "certain" circumstances. (or kick, hit, etc) This book is a good way for parents to explain the difference.
Human Sex trafficking and child pedophilia are both causes I feel strongly about / know a good bit about / and support, so I'm so glad you thought of doing this.
I'd like for Navy Seal Craig Sawyer to see your book. He has developed an elite group of veterans to go after these type of sick perpetrators, and is also working on funding a documentary exposing the prevalence of trafficking and kidnapping of kids. Naturally he is receiving major pushback from "invisible sources".
Vig, it wouldn't surprise me if you ran up against someone/s who don't like what you are doing with this book because it goes against their sick agenda. More power to you.
As for opposition to the book, I welcome it (because organized opposition is actually good for national media attention). I anticipate it, and welcome the debate. There is one consistent factor amongst nearly every parent that is universal... they all want their kids to come home safely. If someone wants to go on Fox News with me and advocate otherwise, I welcome the discussion. So... the opposition won't be organized, it will likely be anonymous and faceless and subterfuge. Meanwhile, we will just continue to concentrate on the message, and keeping kids safe one at a time. The book is edgy and will be controversial. It's never been written before.
Most educational materials in this genre teach kids to use the buddy system, "find a police officer" and other unrealistic psychobabble. I want my kid to fight to the death if necessary, because the fight itself will usually produce freedom, but the alternative may be worse than death. So, I'm not afraid of critics and maybe their children will learn a thing or two during the discussion.
