image001Friends of KARA, please appreciate that these children don’t get much press and aside from the blaming of caregivers and social workers, not much investigating is done and few solutions are offered. The issues are uncomfortable and seldom spoken of which is why the problem of child abuse is epidemic in America.

As a longtime CASA guardian ad-Litem, it hurts me that the millions of terribly injured children are so under our radar.

What follows are some of today’s child tragedies (and a first nation’s report of child death over the years).  Please feel free to send me articles from your community.  The only way life can be improved for abused and neglected children is if we record and talk about these things.

  1. May peace be with You & Yours: My heart goes out to parents, relatives, caregivers & teachers. We must be brave & stouthearted in these challenging times. I live in Washington, DC there is a child missing, Relisha Rudd! She lived in a “family shelter” 4 2 yrs. I feel 4 the parents with rent being so high & minimum wage jobs. However, this situation has shed light on the plight of families struggling out here in April, 2014. Praying that people will get involved & make the world a better place!
