There are more than 2 million people in jail in the US. [1]
There are move than 500,000 children in foster care in the US. [2]
There are many US elementary and high schools that could benefit from  
additional resources.
Tonight, many children in the US will go to bed hungry.

When we talk about human potential, I prefer to think about these  
issues. They can be solved.

Call it my "pro-life" agenda.
