Today is International Children’s Day

The Save The Children Foundation has just issued a report entitled  “The End of Childhood Index” which describes the problems facing children around the world. In the list gathered by the Foundation, the United States ranks 36th out of the 176 nations covered in the report.  The report points out that where you are born will affect a person’s longevity. And the kind of life live will affect the nation for 15 years.

The ten states which are most threatened are Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, and Nevada.
