Review for Children: Our Ultimate Investment, Van Nuys, CA, USA
This charity was the vision of Laura Huxley, the celebrated author and humanitarian. She realized that children play a special role in society due to the fact they they grow into their social group's leaders (and followers). An investment in the physical, intellectual, emotional, social, and spiritual needs of children is an investment in the future of the planet. At a time in world history when Earth faces many crises -- ecological, political, and religious -- children are often the victims of povery, warfare, and ethnic strife. This is especially true of girls, who are undervalued, explotied, and abused in many parts of the world. If children are to become healthy adults, their childhood needs to be free from trauma and filled with joy, love, and intellectual and artistic stimulation. This was Laura Huxley's fervent hope, and mine as well. Stanley Krippner, Ph.D.
