STATISTICS Recent reports on violence against children from around the world continue to highlight the catastrophic scale and intensity of harm that so many children suffer as part of their daily experience. In the world of statistics it can be easy for us to forget the larger, harsher context that the numbers represent. Each statistic is a window to the real and visceral hurt, fear and pain of someone with power using that power to intrude and violate a child’s body and spirit.

EVENTS Budding Artist Makes Big Debut Five year-old Georgia Saunders-Mc. Conomy wanted to help with the Asian Tsunami relief effort, so she asked her dad how she could help. Since Georgia is talented at drawing and coloring, she came up with the idea of selling her artistic works for $1 each. To Georgia ’s delight, neighbors and friends have been more than generous. Her first few drawings sold quickly and she has raised more than $400.
