Before returning to the Spencer Magnet last month, I spent seven years working for a nonprofit whose mission was to provide healing and hope to abused and neglected children.
At Sunrise Children’s Services (formerly Kentucky Baptist Homes for Children), there were constant reminders of young lives scarred by mistreatment. The stories were horrific.
There were children who had been kept in cages and given dogfood to eat. Kids old enough for middle school who had been hidden in secret, never learning their colors and shapes, let alone numbers and letters.
