Seema Jilani wrote this frank, and frankly horrifying, piece on the currently occurring epidemic of child abuse in America for UK's Guardian. Along with the stories and statistics she quotes in the article, Seema provides a link to a BBC News 6-screen summary of their documentary on American child abuse - well worth reading as well.
There's nothing more for me to say here at WNL. I hope you will read Seema's article and get some facts, sadly provided by another country's TV network resources, on the state of America's children. Come back to comment, please.
