Philosophy & Religion • 3 hrs. • Anthology • ©

These prayers and lamentations, written or collected by the author, decry how little society invests in children and express compassion for mothers whose children are murdered, lost to drugs or hurt by family misfortunes. This sad and angry reading is softened by an introductory reminiscence of the author's childhood in a supportive, but segregated, community. Subtitled PRAYERS AND MEDITATIONS ON LOVING AND WORKING FOR CHILDREN, this material is presented too rapidly for the number of words and the amount of information in each sentence. There are scarcely any pauses between paragraphs or even between major ideas. A slower reading and some musical transitions would help the listener appreciate these poems and prayers.
