Early Childhood Quotes: Marian Wright Edelman

A.  A nation that does not stand for its children does not stand for anything and will not stand tall in the future. Marian Wright Edelman

B.  Children must have at least one person who believes in them. It could be a counselor, a teacher, a preacher, a friend. It could be you. You never know when a little love, a little support will plant a small seed of hope. Marian Wright Edelman

C.  Investing in [children] is not a national luxury or a national choice. It’s a national necessity. If the foundation of your house is crumbling, you don’t say you can’t afford to fix it while you’re building astronomically expensive fences to protect it from outside enemies. The issue is not are we going to pay – it’s are we going to pay now, up front, or are we going to pay a whole lot more later on. Marian Wright Edelman
