I’ve been reading a piece by Andrea Elliot writing for the New York Times called Invisible Child. It is an incredible piece of journalism – the sort of journalism that really illustrates the power of words. This quote came from it –
a metropolis rived by inequality and indifference.
the quote and indeed the piece is a sad inditement of society and in particular ours. While the piece is based in New York what’s really upsetting is that I suspect the little girls story is not a unique one. The quote is not one of those you would find on a wall a top a pretty picture. But the piece does have plenty of implications for educators who struggle to make a difference to these children’s lives. You can read the whole thing here. It a long read but really well worth your time.
