  • These are fond memories. And experiences that shaped who you are. Unfortunately, today, there are many kids who don’t have these types of experiences. Their circumstances are preventing them from having a full childhood. They are forced to deal with grown-up issues. Poverty. Hunger. Health issues. Family issues. Crime and violence. Too often, kids are forced to grow up too fast.
