Responsibility & Leadership

Each Child Belongs to All of Us: Parents to Parents

What would you do for the safe return of your kids?

One of the basic tenets of parenthood is the responsibility of the parent to care for their child and protect them. Maya Angelou wrote: “Each child belongs to all of us and they will bring us a tomorrow in direct relation to the responsibility we have shown to them.” Parents are fierce protectors of their children and we are all the protectors of the next generation. Use your voice and your power as a parent to reach across cultures and religions to help release the hostages in Gaza so they can continue to grow in freedom.
