Marian Wright Edelman’s Child Watch® Column: “The State of America’s Children”

As budget “negotiations” continue, Edelman’s Column is a truth-telling we all need to hear.

Every person of faith should revisit the prophets and the gospels and the tenets of all great faiths that require us as individuals, congregations, and communities to answer God’s call to nurture and protect all children. I hope our public officials will think hard, too, about what they value and whether their choices will contribute towards a more or less unified and just nation for all.

  1. Thank you, Fr. Dan, for posting the link to Marion Wright Edelman’s column. She is a dynamic voice for children. California is in danger of losing or greatly reducing the WIC (Women, Infant, Children)program which provides nutrition and medical care. It has been very successful. We need to be on the alert that this doesn’t happen while we are inattentive. Keep up the good blog, Fr. Dan.
