With all of the pomp and circumstance that’s been leading up to this for weeks, if not months, it made me think; shouldn’t every child that enters this world be celebrated and cared for in the same way? I’m not necessarily talking about money but about ensuring that our children have bright futures. Forget the fact that England’s newest prince will have the red carpet rolled out for him everywhere he goes. More importantly, he will be educated, fed and loved. All of our children, whether they have a title in front of their name deserve these same basic rights.
The Children’s Defense Fund reports:
-A child is abused or neglected every 42 seconds.
-A child dies before his or her first birthday every 18 minutes.
-A child or teen is killed by gunfire every 3 hours.
