|There is an unadulterated life-light in a child's eyes - until it is extinguished, often by that which it trusts and loves best. In our first world we are often societies of "crippled children" rearing children in their turn and my heart bleeds for all the myriad causes whether personal or social. You have elucidated your progression of thoughts so clearly and with such lightness of touch for what is necessarily a very "heavy" subject. Yes, ultimately WE are responsible for US and for those gifted to our care. And fundamentally it's that old four-letter word again that is lacking or wrongly projected... L O V E. Thoughtful and provocative. xx|

|Yes, yes, yes. Kill the EGO within. Yet I find many look at me with a blank expression, believing that the ego, their ego is them-self. And without it they would wither. Rather than see for the first time since being a child.|

|Instead of blaming leaders, the government
everyone else for the state of our predicament
we should clean up our own establishment
we're responsible for our childrens environment
Wise and meaningful counsel, Eileen. Thank you for sharing it. Love and best wishes to you,

|a study finds egoism the primary cause
How so sadly true. If only we humans could put our egos aside, and open our eyes and hearts. If we could do that, we might even be able to leave them a better world.

|Sometimes I ask my self after seeing so many children being born into utterly poverty and human deprivation...why? Looking into those sad eyes that wouldn't see next week...why? And then I hear the "learned leaders" telling me that those children are the future.

|Eileen, your words do indeed give us pause to think about how our actions de reflect the actions that our children will take...mirrored in so many ways.

|Eileen, although I do not recall who made the statement or the exact way it is phrased, here is what it means -- in life if you are looking for the greatest foe you ever to have to face, look no further than your mirror -- you remind us of the atrocities we face at home, even in time of peace -- and I can think of nothing more disturbing or atrocious than when someone does anything to harm a defenseless child -- may peace and love be always with you my dear friend -- Jon Michael|

|Help the parent, help the child, I love the native saying, I think it was Navaho, there were not orphans in an Indian village. Judgement is not going to fix it, love is, when we trample on people we trample on children, look around, there's sure a lot of it going on in the world , start in the slums of Calcutta, no, it's not an Indian problem but one of our species. Hugs! Jasmin Horst|

|When we destroy them in the womb there is little wonder why questions are asked when the answer is right before us and we allow it or accept it as a way of life.
