Today, the day of the year with the most light, we walked from darkness to light in support of ATC Sisterhood's Darkness To Light Stewards Of Children CSA education and prevention workshops. Named the "Take 7 Steps" walk, it was our way of saluting D2L's 7 Steps To Protecting Our Children, the backbone of the Stewards program. We walked 7K (4.3 miles)...1K for each Step. The police escorted us as we made our way through Stoughton, MA, passing 4 schools, the Little League fields and the courthouse, stopping along the way at each K to post and acknowledge each Step of prevention. "Kisses From Dolce" fits perfectly with Step 3, Talk About It. For more information about bringing the workshop to your school, faith center, youth-serving organization or neighborhood, or about the book, contact me at You can find Darkness To Light online at

Two years ago, on the longest day of the year, we literally walked from darkness to light in support of ATC Sisterhood's CSA (child sexual abuse) prevention efforts and our Darkness To Light Stewards Of Children workshops. It was an awesome, meaningful experience; we gathered before dawn on Boston's Freedom Trail at the site of our nation's first school house and walked to the colonial home of Paul Revere.
This year we will "Take 7 Steps" in support of D2L's "7 Steps To Protecting Our Children," the tenets of the Stewards Of Children workshops. We will walk in Stoughton, 7 K, one K for each step ("Kisses From Dolce" fits beautifully with Step 3: Talk About It).
Please join us on this meaningful occasion. Learn the 7 Steps, promote awareness and help make our community, and the world, safer for our children. You can read more about our efforts and the walk here.
See you Sunday!
