Dee Miller: Save underprivileged children

For just pennies a day Americans can feed the hungry children of poverty-stricken countries. There’s even a nonprofit organization to feed and adopt abused and neglected animals, but what about the starving, orphaned, abused and neglected children living in the dirty streets of America?

For just pennies a day Americans can feed the hungry children of poverty-stricken countries. There’s even a nonprofit organization to feed and adopt abused and neglected animals, but what about the starving, orphaned, abused and neglected children living in the dirty streets of America? While I agree all children are precious and deserving of love and nurturing, it breaks my heart to see this country’s priorities so screwed up! There isn’t as much publicity or tax write-offs when you take a hungry child off the streets and there’s no free T-shirt or tote bag with your donation. But if we taught birth control to the overpopulated nations and devote salvation here at home, imagine the well-adjusted, self-confident, educated young adults running this country and the world. I might be alone in my thinking, but it’s sad to know a child is alone in this world.

Dee Miller, Modesto
