This weight is being felt atop the daily news of global atrocities as well as events in our own families & communities.

If you know anything about Mr. Rogers, you know his main theme was about the neighborhood — and about who the neighbor is. It’s a value that the children in our care remind us of on a regular basis.

Proximity inspires action. The closer we are in proximity to the actual people affected by injustice, abuse, or harm, the more we are impacted and the deeper we engage. Oftentimes a human rights issue, such as the trafficking and exploitation of children, seems “far away” or feels like something that happens “over there.”
