Thank you Jueseppi! I wanted to post this when I received it in email today but doing things on a phone is so slow I had not accomplished it yet:-)
I am so grateful to see so many people recognize the value of each individual especially children. When we put effort into helping children achieve their potential, it benefits everyone.
I often try to reach out to children in my neighborhood but the combination of ineptitude in dealing with people and the forces of poverty, neglect (parents on drugs) and the inherent systems of privilege in our society have made my successes far more rare than I would wish.
I hope that President and Mrs Obama have great influence on our country with these ideas and goals so that the situation changes.
