“It’s not really cool to not have anybody,” said 15-year-old Davion Only, the teen who went before a Florida church congregation asking for a family. No child – anywhere, at any time, for any reason - should have to ask for a family, to ask for love, acceptance and safety.
Davion’s courageous plea illustrates the need in our country to transform our priorities. While we flock to sporting events and shopping malls, seeking entertainment and stuff, flocks of children in the United States – an estimated 400,000+ - wait for what many of us have had all our lives: a family, a home, a bed that is ours and knowing we are loved –always.
May Davion soon have a family, a place of his own in a new home, in hearts that love him forever. That would be cool.
