Could you help me?

I noticed that the resources section of your website does not currently link to our archive of free alcohol addiction and sober living advice.

We are trying very hard to get the message out about the health benefits of quitting drinking

Would you be able to add a link to

It would really help us reach a wider audience and I would be very grateful.

I found this page of your site: and I noticed that you are linking out to as a resource for parents. I wanted to thank you for these efforts, this is a mission I am involved in as well. If I may have just a moment of your time I wanted to suggest a couple important additions to this page which address unfortunately common issues parents face today, the issues of drug abuse, addiction and treatment.

This is the most comprehensive resource for parents with substance abuse and addiction problems available on the web – well-researched, accessible and covers the spectrum of common problems among parents with substance abuse, treatment and recovery. Drug abuse is a common and serious problem among parents. Many who do not receive help of some type end up progressing into more serious addictions to alcohol or other drugs. The problems that parents face have a ripple effect into the entire family – negatively impacting kids, spouses and others.

The goal of these resources is to provide comprehensive resources to parents who need help. This parent resource center serves as a guide for parents with addiction problems, as a supplement to the many treatment center directories on the web, to guide them through the process of seeking treatment and recovery.

The guide includes numerous citations of the most recent research and authoritative resources. While there are many resources on the web, we found that many of them do not address the most common concerns in a comprehensive and accessible manner.

I hope that you will consider these additions to your page and that their quality, as well as the importance of providing much-needed resources to those looking for help, merits inclusion on your site. Thank you so much for your time. If you are not responsible for modifications of this page, or prefer I do not contact you, I apologize for the miscommunication, and I would greatly appreciate it if you could point me in the right direction.

Best regards,

Hi Aurora,

My name is Keri. My daughter, Reese, and I have been researching Fire Safety for a school project and came across your page,

It was very useful to us so thank you for your helpful resource! Reese and I came across another page that we used for the project,

The page has some great information on Home Fire Safety and we wanted to share it with you in case you were interested in including it alongside your other resources for other students to find. Let me know your thoughts! :)

Thanks again and have a wonderful day!

Kind regards,

Hi there,

I’m reaching out to you because I think we share the same mission: to empower the public through knowledge.  As the mother of two adventurous sons (one teen, one preteen), I know what a handful kids can be, and I’m really driven to help other parents… especially when navigating those tricky early years of development.

As part of my work with EducatorLabs - which provides free resources for public use, including in schools and local organizations! - I’ve been working to put together a collection of useful resources to help families.

I read your article and really like it. I think your tribute to Ed and to Sidney are spot on. Thank you so much for the nice words and sentiments.

It was a moving article [End of the Bohrer-Katz Era in Gaithersburg], but it also transported me back to the past. While reading it I remembered the campaigning for Eddie, the parties at Ed and Sharon's home, and watching Ed work his magic. In a painting we have in our house, he is pictured on the front lawn of city hall giving a speech. I can see him in my mind's eye, with Sharon always close by. Thanks so much for sharing.
