America's Promise to Our Children

Newsweek reports in it's Oct. 3, 2005 issue
"Forty percent of children say the American Dream is beyond their reach. A quarter don't feel safe walking alone on the streets of their own neighborhoods. Almost a third of kids under 17 went without health insurance during the last year. Marguerite Sallee, 58, a blond Republican in a power suit, cites these figures to show one thing: America needs to do a better job caring for its children."

One of my favorite quotes is "it takes a village to raise a child". I know that we moved to our town from the Northeast (CT and MA) specifically b/c of the schools and neighborhood. We are in surburbia for real.
