Heads up! I’m a Social Justice Type.

In 2014, 14.8 percent of the people of the United
States
of America lived in poverty.

33.3 percent of those people were children.

Neglect is a considered a form of child abuse.

Neglect is the willful withholding of food, protection, and
proper housing
when these resources are clearly present.

Neglect is any action that interferes with a child’s growth
and development
, especially when the resources to enhance
growth and development are also clearly present.

The neglect of a child is always an abuse of power because
children are always at the mercy of adults.

Poverty in a Nation as rich as the United States of
America
is actually neglect and neglect is Child Abuse.

Poverty in the United States is child abuse.
