This issue of The State of the World's Children calls for leadership from all continents and all sectors of society. It illustrates the many and varied ways that people have shown their commitment to children's welfare. The Report emphasizes the need to give children the best possible start in life, to ensure that every child completes a basic education, and to involve children - adolescents in particular - in the decisions that affect their lives. The State of the World's Children notes that no single government or organization can achieve those goals on their own, but together we can build a world fit for children. This report includes statistical data, text figures, maps and excerpts from the regional high level meetings that were held in 2000-2001 in preparation for the Special Session on Children.

This report examines nutrition, providing a fresh perspective on a rapidly evolving challenge. Despite progress in the past two decades, around 200 million under-fives suffer from undernutrition. Adding to this toll is rising obesity, which affects 38 million children. All these forms of malnutrition threaten childrens development, while obesity is creating a lifelong legacy of disease. At the heart of this evolving challenge is a global shift towards modern diets that do not meet childrens nutritional requirements. The report provides unique data and analysis of malnutrition in the 21st century and outlines recommendations to put childrens needs at the heart of global and national food systems.

I DON'T GIVE A F***! American Mantras to Free the Spirit (A Roadmap to Enlightenment for Godless Mystics). Good old Socrates said: all I know is that I know nothing. If Socrates didn't know it, imagine what it is that I don't know! But there are a hell of a lot of people who say they know a lot, and are therefore much smarter than I and even smarter than Socrates, who certainly would not be someone to be ashamed of as a classmate. There are those who speak with angels, who speak with the dead, with forest creatures, extraterrestrials, goblins and animals... and the luckiest of all speak long distance with God. Sadly, it often happens that these same people, found talking candidly with ghosts, plants, UFOs, sheep, cows and all types of beasts, have serious difficulty communicating with their own children, their partners or with the valet parking dude.
Jesus loves all the little children of the world.' It was the first time I heard about the name of Jesus. A current of warm waves lashed through my chest when the hymn touched me and a consoling joy filled my wounded heart.

"The Victimized" is a truthful and soul-searching story of the life and faith journey of a Catholic from communist China. The story also gives a glimpse on the history of a more than half a century long persecution on the Catholic Church in People's Republic of China. More than just a narrative on religious persecution, this book displays untold circumstances and background of the persecution including behind the scene stories of both the Church and the Government. A Vatican-China relatioship of hostility mold-ed by the conflict between Roman Catholic Hierarchy and the Chinese Communist Authority has been the cause of persecution on the Catholic Church in China and the source of misery in daily life for the faithful. When quite a number of persecuted Catholics had told their heroic experiences, what the author is sharing here are rather true feelings of a persecuted Christian and a twisted soul: human frailty under trials; confusion and loneliness of heart in the dark hours of the soul; painful helplessness of going astray from the Almighty and finally the new recognition of God's wondrous mercy when a rebirth of faith was bestowed. This book is written in view of the Vatican's trasition with dramatic change of its policy toward China and the Church of China under the new Pope Benedict XVI since 2005 which has inevitably led to a reflection on the past, a realistic look on the present, and the hope for a brighter future of the Catholic Church in China. Readers could be brought to a new understanding of the situation and way of life of Catholics living under the communist system of China which is quite different from that of the ex-communist European nations owing to cultural and historical reasons, as well as a new understanding of why the Catholic Church has been the most persecuted amid the nation's political change and turmoil and how faith has prevailed in a communist country in spite of long term hardships of life.

Author: Salomon Alain Mpouma
Publisher: WestBow Press
The author surrounds personal tales with reflections on finding happiness within oneself, including truisms from thinkers like Woodsworth and Gandhi. Mpouma has a lot to say about his life, which has been one of never fitting in. Things took a harsh turn when he was two years old and his father, a candidate for public office in Cameroon, was assassinated. Growing up amid the resulting family turmoil, Mpouma was frequently getting into trouble at home and at school. He bounced around from the homes of his mother, brothers, and foster father, and never felt wanted. During this time, he sensed a connection with his deceased grandfather, known as Oboss, the one who messes things up. Mpouma was comforted and inspired by the memory of his outspoken grandfather and his honesty in family or village meetings. In his twenties, Mpouma won the familys approval by getting married and working at the bank. But his heart wasnt in the marriage, and after he got divorced, that approval disappeared. Mpouma joined Soka Gakkai International (SGI), a Buddhist organization that promotes world peace via achieving personal inner peace. (Excerpt from Kirkus Discoveries, Nielsen Business Media)
