These are Our Children - Is Anybody Listening to Them?

Of course I thought as the country really began to feel the impact of the economic crisis this past fall, that people who had stereotyped and denigrated the poor would realize that poverty can happen to anyone. I've decided that far too many are so locked in their ideologies and misguided ideas about individualism, that they probably can't be reached.

But there are any number of people who understand that poverty impacts real people.

These children are real. Their stories are real. They're not just our future. They are our present. And the solutions we employ, have to make their lives better and give them hope...

They really are us...
