February 12 is our State of the Union address. In the wake of the tragedy in Newtown, Conn., Save the Children, together with Children’s Health Fund, Every Child Matters, First Focus, Harlem Children’s Zone and Share Our Strength, has launched a petition urging the Obama Administration and Congress to establish a National Commission on Children. The partner organizations will send their signed call for action to the White House prior to the President’s State of the Union address on Feb. 12.

My children ages 4 and 2, have never been in a Mother’s Day Out program or pre-school/daycare environment. Mainly, because I’ve been able to stay home with them while working, and we haven’t been able to justify the expense. (via Newtown Tragedy Sets Change in Motion)

Another State of the Union address is happening tomorrow (2.12.13). President Obama will be talking about many topics, including his proposal to curb gun violence.

Save the Children is the world’s leading independent organization for children. Their vision is a world in which every child attains the right to survival, protection, development and participation.

It’s easy to get wrapped up in the inner-workings of your own home and forget there is a larger world out there. When you’re a parent, it’s almost an occupational hazard, this focus on what’s inside your own house. But another occupational hazard of motherhood is the growing empathy for all children, whether they’re yours or not. (via A Plea for Our Children | The Right Hand Mom)

Every child deserves to be given a chance to be a child. Every child deserves a happy and safe childhood. Every child deserves an opportunity for a bright future. There are 16 million children living in poverty in the United States. Twenty children’s lives were lost in Newtown, CT recently. These children did not get a chance to become adults.

Save the Children is reminding us that the USA needs to bring back the National Commission on Children. Sign the online petition which will be presented to the White House before President Obama’s State of the Union address on Feb. 12, 2013.
