"Shift Happens"

I'm in Milwaukee this week with approximately 1,100 other leaders, advocates and all-round do-gooders at the Prevent Child Abuse America national conference. 

It is great meeting with old friends and colleagues and making new friends from across the country who share our organization's mission to prevent the abuse and neglect of our nation's children.

There have been a wide variety of excellent sessions including a handful that featured some of the good work that Prevent Child Abuse WV has been doing, as well as some of our key partners.

One highlight was a discussion about the future of child abuse prevention given the exponentially rapidly changing world in which we live. To open this discussion, PCAA shared the following video entitled "Shift Happens" by Karl Fisch, which has some mind-blowing information.

It really is incredible to take a step back and consider just how fast the world around us is changing. We live in exciting and transformative times that are rich with opportunities.
