      The vast majority of crime continues to be perpetrated by adults against children, far and away most of it committed by parents against their biological children or the children under their nominal guardianship.

      (Yes it IS my business, and yours, how people raise their kids. How people raise their kids has almost everything to do with our relationship to self, others, and the planet.)

      Members of our species rape and beat and torment children, members of our species send children off to prison to be raped and beaten and tormented, and members of our species put ours bodies and lives between frightened children and a crazed gunman, a wildfire, an F5 tornado.

      How can I keep from singing?
