Mr. Burch visited my daughter's school today to answer questions about his book They Cage the animals at night. I have never seen my 13 year old more moved by a book in her life. With tears in her eyes she retold the story to me. What an amazing, brave man to have endured such pain and neglect, however, still find love in his heart. This should be required reading for all teens, especially in a time when most are living with abundance. My dear Mother always said there is a big difference between want and need. A lesson that has been difficult for me to teach her. Until now; my daughter has been profoundly touched by this story.
