Rosie O’Donnell may have said it best in her Lifetime original movie “America” ©2009 A&E Television Networks, LLC and Lifetime Entertainment Services, LLC., based on the real-life story of a transitional-aged foster youth:

“Maybe I’m naive, but I think in a country like ours, we can do better. We must. These kids don’t belong to somebody else. They belong to all of us. They are America’s children … They are America.”
-Rosie O’Donnell
