The Kids Who Cannot Advocate For Themselves

Ho, ho, Ho!!! I’m Christian Robicheau welcoming you to the dynamic month of December!
Ah yes! December is here and with it comes so much to celebrate, share, give, and to be thankful for!
For this week, I am pleased to share our president’s weekly editorial with you and today Donna J. Jodhan reflects on the plight of our most vulnerable kids!
Please give this a read!
Wishing you an enjoyable weekend.


The kids who cannot advocate for themselves

No, they are just unable to do so and each time we either intentionally or inadvertently snuff out their lives it means that we are guilty of depriving them of their futures.
This sure reminds me of a song that the Carpenters made so popular and this verse shall forever stand out in my mind. It goes something like this.
“Bless the beasts and the children! For in this world they have no voice! They have no choice!”

Absolutely correct so now what can we do to change this? More listening and less shouting? More tutoring and guiding and less pushing and bullying? Kids learn from adults and I humbly submit that if we become better advocates for them then they in turn will follow our example and become even better advocates for the future.

Just my two cents for today.
