Children are commonly born into this situation and have no control over their living arrangements. Most of these children go through life living on the streets or in homeless shelters. Health care is very limited or even nonexistent for these children. Physical, psychological, and emotional damage is very frequent in homeless cases. Also, it is common for a child to leave their home because of abuse and violence.

When I learned that single motherhood was the lowest rung of the prosperity ladder 40 years ago, I asked myself, "Why would I choose that?" Is that still the problem today? Where are the fathers? Where are the husbands? Must fathers live apart from mothers and children so that the government at all levels can give them money? Is it working? Are Baltimore, Maryland, and the federal government proving themselves good parents? Can we reverse this? Are kids so accustomed to having government buy food and shelter that they only have to pay for iPhones?

In case you didn't know, butterflies are in trouble. "Butterflies desperately need our help," says butterfly breeder Rick Mikula, author of the award-winning Family Butterfly Book and owner of Hole-in-Hand Butterfly Farm in Pennsylvania. "The destruction of habitat is killing butterflies. The more asphalt we lay, the more wildflowers we replace with hybrids and ornamentals, and the more insecticides we spray, the fewer the wings that will fill the sky." In an effort to reverse butterfly loss, Mikula breeds, raises and releases butterflies.

After three years of monitoring food supplies at a remote refugee camp in Somalia, one of her first crises in Macedonia was an urgent request from a medical team. A diabetic refugee had just crossed the border. Could she provide a special diet?She could not believe what she was hearing, much less that she was able to fulfill the request."In Africa, we don't have special food or diets. There are no diabetics in the camps," she says. "They just die."Food, shelter, medical care, recreational facilities -- all are more abundantly available for the ethnic Albanian refugees than for their counterparts in African camps.
