    Child Watch® Column: "Urban Food Deserts Threaten Children's Health"
    If any of us were forced to live in a desert we'd probably find trying to survive in a barren, desolate wasteland difficult. But through a series of public policies and private sector decisions, millions of mostly low-income and minority families in America have been condemned to subsist in vast urban "food deserts" that pose serious health threats to their children.

    Child Watch® Column: "And a Little Child Shall Lead Them"
    I love to share a story shared with me about my dear friend and mentor Rev. William Sloane Coffin, Jr. It was Christmas Eve and the pews at New York City's Riverside Church were packed.

    Child Watch® Column: "Powerful Special Interests Should Not Trump Children's Health Needs"
    A theologian friend shared the story of taking her car to a Jiffy Lube for servicing. Not having anything to read, she picked up a manual on the coffee table about boating. A chapter on the rules for what happens when boats encounter one another on the open sea described two kinds of craft: burdened and privileged. The craft with power that can accelerate and push its way through the waves, change direction, and stop on demand is the burdened one. The craft dependent on the forces of nature, wind, tide, and human effort to keep going is the privileged craft.

    Child Watch® Column: "Amen! Rev. Dr. Ray Hammond and Ella"
    On November 4, 2009, about 4,000 babies in strollers, young children, parents, youths, teachers, child care providers, doctors, and grandparents rallied and strolled all around our U.S. Capitol. We told Congress that millions of children must not be left worse off after health reform and that the effective and cost effective Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) should be kept and improved rather than eliminated as the House health reform bill would do.
