Re the Aug. 19 article 2-year-old pays with her life for DCF failure: We are all at fault for the death of 2-year-old √Aliyah Branum. Hillary Clinton once said, “It takes a village to raise a child” and she is right.
The state Department of Children & Families is underfunded and understaffed. We all need to volunteer to save these kids’ lives. Become a foster parent, a Guardian Ad Litem like me or be a Big Brother or Big Sister. At the very least, if you see something, say something. Call the DCF abuse hotline at √1-800-962-2873 or 911.
