NEW: Promise 2, that children and youth will have the resources they need

Recommended Posts

On August 7, DC Action for Children released the second of five promises in their 5 Promises to Kids Campaign -- Promise 2: Children and youth will have the resources to meet life's challenges.

 

This promise is about adults having a responsibility to support and nurture children and youth so they have the opportunity to thrive. We can change the current trajectory of many of the District's young people so that the city no longer leads the nation in adolescent drug use, teen pregnancy, teen violence and school drop-out rates. The District government is obligated to meet the critical needs of young people and provide adequate and quality resources for children and adolescents to transition into successful adults.

 

To learn more about the promise, what the government can do and what has already been achieved, go to http://www.dckids.org/getinvolved/index.php. On the site, you can also learn what residents can do to achieve the promise for all children in the city!

These children need your help that is promised above for all children not just the ones privelaged enough to live in washington dc...................

 

Is this America's only legalized child abuse?

 

The court ordered silencing of the abusing of the chilren......

 

What would you do?

 

Sugar and spice and everything nice.

 

This is suppose to every little girls life.

 

What happens when life is not like that?

 

What if your life is filled with constant abuse by the people who suppose to protect you?

 

For little Katelynn of Indiana, her life is filled with this from a father, stepmother and father's family; everyone but her the relatives that love her have been deined the ability to see her.

 

What happens when the police will not stop this?

 

Than try Child Protection Service, but they will not stop this either.

 

The next thing to do is go to the court.

 

What would you do if the Child Protection Services and the court helped the abusers hurt her?

 

The media might work but they ignore majority of average people.

 

In this search for help, several politicians ignored or said stop bothering them.

 

If these people will not help little katelynn than who will?

 

Will this little girl have to pay the ultimate price for these adults mistakes?

 

What will you do?

 

This is Indiana's Shame Teardrops for Katelynn
