    Interesting that there are no comments here. Lack of interest? I hope not. The truth is, there are children who will be hurting, even when the only time they are touched is by loving arms and kisses of parental love, no matter how thin the wallet of the parents. Poverty, whether new or longstanding, will hurt children, by not allowing the feeding of proper food due to lack thereof; by lack of sufficient education, since today there are few jobs at all, and none that support families, that come without post-high school study or preparation of some kind; and by a dejected spirit that comes with year after year of wondering if Mom and Dad, and maybe he or sister or brother will ever have anything else to look forward to. Platitudes sound great if you don't have the problem, but they don't work. Sorry. Fact is, it's more painful looking into the face of a child you dearly love and can not give even the bare necessities to by your own hand than it is to suffer the worst pain you could imagine being visited on your own physical self.
