I agree with Minister Alveda King, as well as our Nation’s medical professionals DECLARING that large numbers our Nation’s and Planet’s children and teens are in grave danger of experiencing,THROUGH NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN, a potentially life scarring medical disease known as ‘Childhood Trauma’ or Adverse Childhood Experiences’ (#ACEs).
However, frankly my compassion and empathy has PRACTICAL limits.

In my opinion “THE ENEMY” are crappy, negligent single or married parents failing to place the emotional and/or physical well being of our Nation’s children and teens ABOVE ALL ELSE!
Far too often resulting with tormented kids maturing into depressed teen and adult citizens engaging in anti-social behaviors because they DO NOT CARE about shaming, humiliating or embarrassing the dysfunctional people who FAILED at properly raising, nurturing and them during a critical period of human/childhood development.
In my opinion America’s growing population of FATHERLESS children and teens will be the demise of our society and Nation!

“America’s Firm Resolve to End Childhood Abuse and Neglect”
BO: “When you look at the borders it’s the lowest rates of immigration we’ve seen since the 1970s…”
When I look at our borders, particularly our southern border, I see drug smugglers and terrorists entering our neighborhoods unfettered, free to do as they please with no roots or allegiance to my country or my peaceful, law abiding neighbors.
For decades all politicians have failed us on immigration issues, as well as our expanding and shameful National Epidemic of Child Abuse and Neglect, aka Poverty, that for decades has deprived untold numbers of depressed children from experiencing and enjoying a safe, fairly happy American kid childhood.
Restore Pride In Parenting; End Child Abuse & Neglect
Read popular American rapper Tupac Amaru Shakur (Lesane Parish Crooks; June 16, 1971 – September 13, 1996) lyrics to learn about his love-hate relationship with his mom, his great disappointment with his dad, and about Tupac’s frequent suicidal thoughts.
Read about how Tupac’s drug addicted mother accepted proceeds of the harmful anti-social acts Tupac raps/writes about committing against his peaceful neighbors. I have to tell you, reading Tupac’s lyrics brings back a lot memories of the horrific emotional child abuse I witnessed during the nearly twelve year I provided police services to Shawn Carter’s community.
Shawn “Jay Z” Carter (born December 4, 1969) is another victim of child abuse/neglect who raps/writes about the physical harm and fear he caused to his peaceful neighbors and community.
Reading Shawn “Jay Z” Carter describe the pain he caused to his neighbors and community, brought back painful memories, causing me experience much of the same anxiety and pain I experienced from personally witnessing the physical and emotional pain young Shawn Carter caused to individuals as well as an entire housing complex and surrounding neighborhoods.
In 1987, the same year emotionally depressed 2015 Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar was born, songwriter Suzanne Vega wrote a song about child abuse and VICTIM DENIAL that was nominated for a Grammy.
Suzanne nailed it, parents and caregivers do the most horrific things to their kids, yet many kids will defend their abusers, blaming themselves for their “blues,” bruises and injuries before admitting a parent/caretaker harmed them.
“Yes I think I’m okay I walked into the door again Well, if you ask that’s what I’ll say
