All children

It was a real joy yesterday watching children all over the city enjoying themselves as they paraded around schools and neighborhoods in their Halloween costumes. Their smiles, giggles and exuberance made many of us smile and sense the wonder of their presence. However, there were many children yesterday that experienced a different reality. No one fussed over what they wanted to be on Holloween.They were hungry like any other day without proper food and nutrition. Their school was overcrowded and their passion for learning was thwarted by a host of realities. Coupled with this their daily nightmares of physical and emotional abuse continue. As a society it is wonderful to celebrate holidays like Halloween but all of us have a responsibility to the children in the shadows who live in great pain and fear.
