Cleveland, OH (PressExposure) July 10, 2008 -- It is sad and true that there are many children out there living on the streets not only to survive but also seeking to find a permanent place to call home. As time passes, these children will remain vulnerable to the harsh elements of society such as discrimination, homelessness, unemployment and crime. Feel the emotions and concerns of the ever-waiting youth through the poetry talent of author Kimberly Faith Brown in And Still, They Wait, her new book released through Xlibris Publishing.
Through Brownâs initial piece Portrait of a Waiting Child to And Still, "They Wait," Brown gives a mental picture of the pain, the corruption, and the hope of adoption and foster care. A heartfelt mixture of sadness and inspiration serve as an inside eye to the mental process these children endure. Brown provides a voice for those children who are caught up in the system at no fault of their own and challenges the "system" to take a stand and "Stand Up" in support of all waiting children. And Still, âThey Waitâ strives through people, politics, poetry, prose and âpureâ excellence to ignite an urgent national dialogue about the foster care child welfare "system." The poems and prose in this book adhere to beliefs that all children deserve a chance to have a home, whether it is for a second or a lifetime. Furthermore, Brownâs artistry promote that negative labels destroy the soul while positive labels promote the goal. Human beings, whether adult or youth, are not "special needs"âjust special people who deserve special opportunities that lead to possibilities of growth, encouragement, empowerment, and success.
Inside And Still, âThey Waitâ readers will take issue with global foster care and the correlation to civil rights. Brownâs imagination and experiences within the child welfare system allows both professionals and lay persons to captivate scenarios of which causes âsystemsâ to inadvertently discriminate against people and disrupt the growth process while at the same time promoting the need of acceptance, fairness and second chances. Pure hypocrisy to say the least.
Explosive dialogue fueled by captive anger of how âsystemsâ are destroying our future generation of a less talked about nation creates the birth of And Still, âThey Waitâ and commands resolutions for a failing society once destined for greatness. And Still, âThey Waitâ re-establishes the phrase âEnough is Enoughâ and openly commands the process âNever Again.â
