Dear Friends & Colleagues,
Even as the world around us changes at a dizzying speed, the fundamentals remain the same. I am reminded of the Mad Hatter ride at Disney World – the cups spinning madly in different directions while the plate holding them remains constant in its direction and speed.
I don’t know whether it’s age (after all, I’ve been doing this work for over 30 years!) or simply the accumulation of experience working with those who live in the margins of society, but I’ve decided to write a blog to share the thoughts, feelings and speculations that arise as I look both back and ahead. Most of these blog posts — which will come somewhat irregularly — will be about children and mothers caught up in the whirlwind of social services, juvenile justice, education and healthcare. I believe you will resonate with the human themes they will reflect.
I hope you will take a few minutes to read my blog posts as they come up. If you find value in what you read, we hope you will forward the blog to your friends… and that you will take a moment to share your thoughts. I hope you will agree that a wide-angle perspective helps us understand the laws of nature that bind us together as well as the
commonalities and differences that separate struggle from triumph.
Looking forward to an enriching, enlightening dialogue with you,
Dr. Sunaina Rao Jain
