Sean Parnell: Choose Respect: $12M to eradicate domestic violence epidemic

Increasing public safety remains a core priority--and that will not change. Increasing public safety means shining the light of justice and a ray of hope into places where domestic violence and sexual assault have ruled, for we will not rest until every Alaskan lives safe from abuse and terror.

Our administration's budget includes nearly $12 million to eradicate this epidemic. The Choose Respect initiative focuses on prevention and enforcement, and it provides services for victims and survivors. But Choose Respect is more than just a government initiative--it is a personal initiative. It is about each of us honoring the dignity and value of every human being. It is about setting people free from generations of abuse.

Sarah Palin: Caring for special needs kids is part of culture of life

One of the great privileges given to me last year was the chance to be a witness for the truth that every child has value; to say to special needs children that they are beautiful and loved. And needed. We learn more from them than they from us. Across America, a great change is coming in public policy affecting these children, and Alaska can lead the way. This is a part of the culture of life where every child is cherished and protected.
