“No matter how busy you may think you are, you must find time for reading, or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance.” Confucius
“School lunches are $3.00! and some kids go to school just to eat. They’re hungry.”
One of the youth just brought something to my attention and I wanted to be sure she’s heard.
Something she brought up made since; the majority of the kids in this particular school aren’t going to school to learn, they’re going to school
1) Because they are hungry.
2) To get away from the home environment most ‘average’ Americans can’t even dream of.
The youth I’ve watched grow up are kids from broken homes, drugs, molestation, physical abuse and more.
They are getting away from the home because they are hungry and need a safe place to go. If they can’t afford school lunches…….then what?
