Angels In Waiting

AIW is dedicated to recruiting qualified nurses to provide loving homes, nursing care, and other needed services for medically fragile foster care infants and children. We help facilitate the child's move from hospitals, group homes and institutions into private residences under the care of Registered and Licensed Vocational Nurses as their foster parents. We provide two essential ingredients for these children to heal - loving home environments and individualized nursing care.

LUPERCALIA:  DAY OF THE WOLF
Valentine's day is a day of ribald revelry.  It is day when crystalline champagne flows through the soul and creates an effervescence of the spirit.  On this day legions of chocolate fountains pay homage to the great prophet Hershey, and untold millions of blood-red roses form a sanguine tapestry that celebrates the color of life. It is a day when lovers and lunatics come to crave the raging irrationality and forceful strength of love.  The word Valentine itself derives from the Latin Valentinus and means literally strength.  Valentine's day is strong meat, and the church's attempts to gloss over this fact have been futile.  From a recent historical perspective, it was also the day when a dozen hoods bumped off a dozen other hoods in The St. Valentine's Day Massacre.  The result was a dozen blood-red hoods.  In truth, this day was intentionally chosen to carry out this hit as a sacrifice to the entity whom gangsters and plutocrats worship as their one true, sociopathic deity.  
The truth about Valentine's day is that the name is quite apocryphal.  The church fabricated a story about a kindly priest named Valentinus in an attempt to expunge the original celebration, which was the Bacchanalian Lupercalia, The Day Of The Wolf.  The Lupercalia was part of the mythos encompassing the origin of Rome itself.  The legendary founders of Rome, Romulus and Remus, were said to have been born of the god Mars and the archetypal Vesta, the eternal virgin.  Vesta feared that Romulus and Remus would be murdered, so she put them in a basket on the Tiber.  The she-wolf, Reminus, found the infants and raised them.  Their feral survival marked the beginning of the eternal city, Rome.  The pre-spring rites of passion and catharsis came to be celebrated in honor of Romulus and Remus and the great wolf that raised them in the den of strength, the Valentinus.  The Lupercalia was a prelude to the dance of spring, and it was filled with numerous rituals of blood and terror; rites that would seem incomprehensibly barbaric to the modern eye.  However, they were attempting to purge their society of all the negative forces that plagued it, and such a titanic catharsis requires the invocation of The Great God Pan, god of primordial nature.  This celebration was originally a week long Rite Of Spring but was later reduced to the evening of February 14th and the day of the 15th.  
An element of this mythos that is particularly striking is the concept of a wolf raising human infants that had been abandoned by humanity.  They had been thrown to wolves, and these wolves nurtured them.  Over the ages there have been a number of fairly well-documented incidences of cast-off human children being raised by wolves.  Possibly humanity can learn something about its own humanity from these wolves that would take in the defective children of humanity.  In truth, the human race is tremendously indebted to these totem animals that taught our Paleolithic antecedents the art of the hunt and who showed them that passionate, primal nature was to be revered, which was the origin of the Great Lupercalia.  
The recent donations to Angels In Waiting have been quite sterling and have enabled our organization to keep the wolf from the door.

Cling To The Spirit of Christmas Present

All proceeds go towards Angels In Waiting
All proceeds go towards Angels In Waiting

By Tim Arnold,

Angels In Waiting is now soaring through the winter holiday season and approaching the winter solstice, when the sun is reborn.  It is a time to recall that this titanic "Heart Of Fire" is born again each year and continues to radiate the warmth and illumination that make life possible.  It is the true savior of humanity, sacrificing its essence so that human race can perpetuate itself and thrive.  This solar force gives each individual the great expectation of being reborn with the sun and rekindling his or her own heart of fire.  

This is, of course, the Dickensian time of the year.  Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" has become the archetypal fable for the holiday season; a great morality play that casts a dark light on the usurious character, Ebenezer Schrooge, and on the penurious plight of unwanted children.  "This covetous, old sinner" only existed to extort usurious interest from the destitute upon whom he preyed.  Marley, his partner, only came to realize after death that "mankind was my business."  Vulturous money lenders like Schrooge were as numerous as old gin bottles in nineteenth century England, and they created usury addicts just like opium suppliers created laudanum addicts.  As a youth, Dickens himself had been victimized by this loan shark horror.  He was compelled to work seventy hour weeks in a boot black factory until he could buy his family out of debtors' prison. Characters such as Oliver Twist and David Copperfield were based upon these experiences.   Additionally, the opium addicts spawned the premature, opium addicted infants.  These are the children who cling to The Spirit of Christmas Present for protection because "humanity will not have them."  

 This nineteenth century dystopian horror is not dissimilar to our dehumanized twenty-first century in which toxic drug usage has proliferated and drug-addicted infants have increased like the interest on Schrooge's loans.  In truth, the usurious banking system of our modern world is exponentially more horrific than Schrooge's quaint, little shop of extortion.  Today's banks can lend out twenty times their assets, making credit addicts out of myriad more desperate people, who pay enormous quantities of interest on "money" that doesn't even exist. Usury originally meant charging any interest on money. Schrooge means literally "to squeeze," and these contemporary Schrooges have squeezed humanity to the point of desiccation.  One percent of the interest collected by banks on phantom "money" could easily, fully fund all the humanitarian organizations in the world.  Perhaps these modern money lenders might look to their souls before it is too late.  Possibly their next incarnations might be as drug-addicted infants.   

In the meantime, Angels In Waiting is looking toward a large, federal grant fund to carry on Its Spirit Of Christmas Present work.  The grant is focused on reducing medical costs incurred by the government.  Innovative programs are being sought after in order to diminish the horrendous impact of medical costs and the abominable health of a very significant percentage of the populace.   In order to work toward creating solutions to this financial and physical dilemma, Angels In Waiting’s founder has created a cognate organization called Nurses For Safer Access, which is dedicated to using herbal decoctions to decrease the usage of potentially dangerous synthetic drugs.  These drugs can have a gamut of adverse effects that potent herbal extracts can ameliorate.  In this manner, the expense of treating a wide range of disorders can be significantly diminished, and individuals can gradually reduce the need for synthetic drugs.  

The UCLA Medical Center is sponsoring Angels In Waiting in its efforts to restore methamphetamine and heroin addicted medically fragile infants and children to health and is working diligently with AIW to garner a significant share of this federal grant money.  It is a very revealing comment on the culture of the United States that more funds will be paid to keep a person imprisoned than to restore the heath of a drug impacted infant.  

We should take quite seriously the prophetic statement of The Spirit Of Christmas Present when he warns mankind to beware of the children clinging to his robes because they are "want and ignorance."  A society where children grow up in extreme want and ignorance is a society that is precariously close to the black sun of oblivion.
