Today on the Voice of Change, I will share with you a story I wrote several years ago, entitled, "Daddy, Why Are We Different"?  This story is a gentle and loving story, telling a little boy of 5 why he was not circumcised, so he could look just like his Dad who was circumcised.  Circumcision has grown into a multi-million dollar business.  However, the rate of circumcisions performed in the USA has been greatly reduced over the last 4 decades, going from a 76 % rate down to a 33% rate, as parents learn that it is an unnecessary procedure, which is extremely painful and tramatic for the infants.  There is not one health organization in the world that promotes having a routine circumcision performed.  Today, more and more parents are questioning circumcision.  In addition, I'll share a remarkable story of a Jewish family who had their heart set on having their son circumcised until they learned the truth about the procedure.
