What made this story so heartwarming and heart breaking was how hesitant the little girl was to get a new coat.

When the issue of childhood hunger is discussed, people usually imagine impoverished children in developing countries. But the truth of the matter is millions of children in America face food-insecurity.

Generation M – the “Millennials” – Making a Difference in Many Spheres of Society

Newsletter

For many years, our references to “generation” usually meant that we were speaking about the people living (and able to act) at the time.  For example, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1936 on accepting his party’s nomination to a campaign for second term, ended his remarks with this: “There is a mysterious cycle in human events.  To some generations much is given.  Of other generations much is expected.  This generation of Americans has a rendezvous with destiny…”  President Roosevelt was a progressive and liberal leader.
