Children's Aid: Time to Nationalize?
Child care and adoption are extremely personal to many people, whether for religious beliefs or other moral values including the ability to raise the child in a healthy manner. As a society, the goal is to protect children of all cultures, in order for them to become healthy contributing adults.
For the Love of Hair
Born with flaming red, extremely curly hair, I, of course, hated it. My classmates were all brown or blonde, and I was the 'other' on the sorting graphs. Never ending names like Pippi Longstocking, Carrot Top, and Anne of Green Gables would hound me when the teachers weren't watching. My hair also turned into an Afro if it even hinted at rain in the forecast, while their coifs stayed silky smooth, or wavy.
