Healing the American Family

Mitt Romney spoke at the NAACP convention in Houston recently. He acknowledged problems facing black communities and the disappointment they have with:

• the majority of their children born to single mothers
• a high rate of their children dropping out of schools,
• a black unemployment rate remaining well over 14 percent,
• a disproportionate number of black men in prison

Former-Governor Romney cited the Brookings Institute’s study that found that graduating from high school, getting a job and waiting to get married and have kids, until at least the early 20s, drastically reduces one’s chances of being poor.

Not only did the presidential candidate speak in favor of strong families, he underscored his solutions for failing schools, and promised to defend traditional marriage.

These are important subjects for our politicians to focus on. Any policy that lifts up, honors and heals the family will be good for all Americans!
