Lynn Garthwaite

  • As a nation, we take great pride in rushing in to rescue people all over the world after natural disasters or horrific despotic regimes. ... Why is there so little compassion for our own hungry children? Why is a child who goes to school hungry and tired supposed to become superhuman and do amazing things in life? When did we become a nation that turns on its own and looks with suspicion on anyone who needs help? Read the words at the base of the Statue of Liberty again and remember what we once stood for.
