Stark Realities


From here:

“The stark realities that persist mean that millions of families will be facing the holidays in temporary homes, or homes under threat, and far too many children will be wishing for an end to the uncertainty and distress their family is facing rather than an Xbox or Barbie doll.”

I actually think that 2nd part has potential to be a good thing. Here is a generation of kids who are being forced to change their world view from aspiring to gross consumerism to a secure and sustainable (the flipside of the uncertainty coin) lifestyle. Is America leading the way in reframing childhood?
