    Child Watch® Column: "Shooting Deaths of Children Rose for Second Straight Year"
    I'm deeply disturbed that after a decade of decline, the number of firearm deaths among children and youths has increased for the second year in a row.

    Hundreds of thousands of our nation's children are being funneled down life paths that lead to arrest, conviction, incarceration and even death. The urgent challenge for each of us and for our nation is to prevent this waste of our children's lives and of our nation's capabilities and future.

    Nationally, one in three Black boys and one in six Latino boys born in 2001 are at risk of going to prison during their lifetimes. Although boys are more than five times as likely to be incarcerated as girls, the number of girls in the juvenile justice system is significant and growing.

    The Youth PROMISE Act shifts the policy paradigm from ineffective punishment and incarceration to evidence-based prevention and intervention to address juvenile delinquency.
