6,574 Days

Posted By Becky Giovagnoni On February 22, 2008 @ 12:00 pm In Advocacy | 4 Comments

I ran across this quote on another blog the other day …

“There are only 6,574 days between a child’s birth and their eighteenth birthday. Don’t waste a single one.”

I have no idea who first said it but it kind of puts the brevity of life into a new light, doesn’t it? Makes you want to move “spend more time with my child” up on life’s priority list.

We have a collection of quotes [3] about children and poverty on our web site. Check it out … some of the names might surprise you.

Do you have a favorite quote about children or poverty? Let me know.
