(USA Today) – Caryl M. Stern, the president of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, writes a column recalling statistics that depict 2014 as the most devastating year for children. “With so many different crises putting children at risk around world — many of them internal, and prolonged, and often only rarely grabbing news headlines — sometimes we stop paying attention. The barrage of ghastly statistics can have a numbing effect. But we must pay attention. We all need to stay informed, and stay involved.”
