...that I read some time ago in a book called "Turning Stones" by Marc Parent. This is a quote that jarred me during my time at the Children's Division, and just as much now in becoming a foster parent.
"You hear about children falling through the cracks in the system. Let me tell you something, there is no system, there are only people. Children don't fall through cracks, they fall through fingers."
Fingers like yours and mine.
Another author reminded me today of the importance of these kids lives. He said, "Often it has been stated that youth is the nation's greatest asset, but it is more than that, it is the worlds's greatest asset. More than that, it is perhaps the world's only hope." These kids need our help.
