Video: Children's Anthem by Roseanne Howell

Monday, July 30, 2012

November of 2011 marked a very special time for any child in and from Child Welfare Systems. In Ontario, the youth themselves, held hearings at Ontario's Legislative Assembly, to address the issue of youth aging out of care, too early, without support.

As a former youth in care, Rosanne Howell was asked to perform her song, "Children's Anthem"; her testimony at the hearings. The song was written for any child who has, or still does, suffer. It is meant to encourage. It also expresses the feelings of what it is like to live in care.
