This piece has me thinking... why is it so easy to come together in support of the children who are victims of war abroad and so difficult to come together in support of the children who are victims of cultural and economic war at home? When you deny Mom or Dad a living wage or health care that they need in order to work to feed their kids, you are killing the kids, too But, in the latter case, the kids are invisible. This is true on both sides of the Atlantic. Sure, we give health insurance to the kids and school lunches and have social workers for the kids---but what about the family? You can not take the kids out of the family and expect the kids to do well.

Can we save the children at home, too?
