    Child Watch® Column: "Economic Crisis Puts Children at Risk"
    "In the middle of all the headlines and 24-hour news reports about the economic crisis, one critical story is just beginning to be told.

Many of the new neglect cases were connected to families trying to make do without heat, electricity or necessary medical care, like asthma medications and other basic needs. An emergency room doctor at Children's National Medical Center in Washington, DC, worried about a recent jump in the number of children coming in with bruises, broken bones and burns, and colleagues in other cities told her they'd noticed the same thing."

    Mientras la actual recesi??n se ha convertido posiblemente en la peor crisis econ??mica desde la Gran Depresi??n de los a??os 30, todos fuimos testigos por medio de la televisi??n de las declaraciones y s??plica por un rescate econ??mico de los CEOs (Directores ejecutivos) de grandes bancos, empresas de inversi??n, sociedades hipotecarias y compa|?as automovil??sticas.

    Child Watch® Column: "Now Is the Time to Bail Our Poor Children and Families Out of Poverty"
    "As the current recession has turned into what may be the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression of the 1930s, we all witnessed televised coverage of the CEOs of big banks, investment houses, mortgage companies and auto makers testify before Congress and plead for financial bailouts.
