"e;When we correct the factors that keep children at risk, we can make a difference in the lives of those children and the adults they'll grow up to be."e; - Mary Frances Bowley
Children are meant to imagine bright futures and chase them. But for the millions of at-risk children in America, hope is lost in the heavy fog of trauma. Make it Zero is a call to bring it back.
Tying shocking statistics to real stories, Make it Zero explores various forms of childhood vulnerability and offers specific ways for everyone to end them. It reveals the world of opportunity behind a single moment of compassion, and it teaches us that when we help the hopeless dream again, we ourselves come more alive.
A book for everyone-moms, dads, teachers, bus drivers, nurses, whomever-it calls us to fulfill our responsibility to children and build a world that is safe for every last one.
Each of us is only one person, but one person determined to act is powerful. Moments can multiply into movements and create groundswells of change. Make it Zero is your moment. Be inspired. Be empowered. Then bring hope to every child.
