Title: Found this quote....

And it really struck a chord with me, especially since our grandkids are severely malnourished (by BM's choice, and ongoing abuse/neglect), and no one in the whole state will do anything to help the kids!

I printed it out, laminated it, and put it on my fridge.

“We are guilty of many errors and
many faults, but our worst crime
is abandoning the children,
neglecting the foundation of life.  
Many of the things we need can wait.  
The child cannot.  
Right now is the time his bones are
being formed, his blood is being made
and his senses are being developed.  
To him we cannot answer ‘Tomorrow’.  
His name is ‘Today’.”

Gabriela Mistral,  1948
