Try to Remember

- This is a blog post by CRF President Milton Jones. – I learned something new about children in poverty today. Surely, I already knew it — but it caught my attention in a vivid way this afternoon. A sponsored child at the Sovereign School in Cap Hatien, Haiti gave me a note. She had been a delightful girl and very helpful in things that I was doing there. She even tried to teach me Creole. But when I got the note, there was an “Uh Oh!” that went off in my mind. I just knew that she going to ask me to give her something. I figured she would hit me up for some money.
