  1. Nothing wrong with a good skill and lots of experience.

    There are so many American children who refuse to go to school or to work.

    Somewhere after 10 years old children decide: "eh, I don't want to do anything" how do you move them into good stewards, how do you give them a good work ethic, how do you let them know that a good education is important?

    There are no assurances in life best thing to do is to follow the path that's laid out for you, by people who love you, like your parents.

  2. Book reference: The Rising of the Women.
    Song Reference: Bread and Roses, covered e.g. by Judy Collins and likely others….
    Historical Reference: The Lawrence, Massachusetts, Textile strike.
    How are there no U.S. women helping with this? It's part of our heritage.
    Children's Book Reference: Lyddie, by Katherine Patterson.
    New York Times Magazine Article Reference: Circa 1981, "Thanks Largely to Francis Perkins."
    The Peace Corps still exists, right? Where are they on this? And Unicef? International Children's Day? Gates?
    We …responsible Americans…..should "have this covered" in a heartbeat, Covid or not…..right? It's our hemisphere, after all, not China or North Korea or Afghanistan that would be so much farther away….
    And lots of Americans speak their language. How hard could it be to "put a school in a box" and send some people to lighten the load, stat? Like a bunch of church mission trips to get the stuff down there and make a footprint? This should take less time to make right than to make a Perri Klass Movie of the Week about a pandemic….(I liked that TV movie back in the 2000's late on Superbowl night–in which the Human Touch Saves The Day….)

  3. Kids have to go out their way to bring bread home, so poor its not exploiting.

    It's either school or work in country's like this because they don't have the same foundation as we do.

    It's been going on forever, nothing new.
