might take a bit of time for a (specific)charity thing to get set up. there'll probably be several of them tomorrow may have to wait til then. Not sure what goes into setting one up
I understand. One of my bigger worries is that in one week this will have faded from the front page and only people in that neighborhood will be the ones who even keep up with the news. Are there any non-profits or government agencies that specifically address childhood trauma from such events? I imagine after 9/11 or hurricanes Katrina and Sandy that the need for child therapy would have risen a lot. I understand that in other countries children are subjected to horrors more often but I am hoping that the US as a society can at least afford to soften the blow (what else is the point of having a big government?).
That's a very real problem. Unfortunately, the parents are probably going to be the ones dealing with most of the consequences for years to come. Children tend to be durable, but unfortunately, it's pretty unpredictable what the reactions will be in the long run.
