14 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana Catholics among 200,000 who took 'Stand for Children' June 1 By Mark Pattison Catholic News Service WASHINGTON (CNS) -- The 200,000 people who flocked to the Lincoln Memorial June 1 for the Stand for Children rally agreed with the call of rally organizer Marian Wright Edelman that every child should have "a head start, a healthy start, a fair start, a safe start and a moral start." While there was no single leg- islative or policy point around which to coalesce, participants were of the mind that if it took a massive rally to put children at the forefront of the national agenda, then so be it. Edelman prayed to God in her keynote address, asking his for- giveness "on our rich nation" where children's poverty, suffer- ing and death are "done quite legally" while "the rich continue to get more at the expense of the poor" and "security rests in bombs more than mothers." She asked God to rid Americans of the confusion between "what is quite legal with what is just in ' your sight," then asked rally par- ticipants to stand and join hands. Hands raised and intertwined, they responded with cheers when Edelman asked them to "commit to leaving no child behind." By doing so, "every one of us will make God proud when the new millennium comes." Religious and scriptural allu- sions were constant during the program, which started with an i i SOUTHWEST BANK OLD NA'IIONM aANCOIU' WASHINGTON-SHOALS-LOOGOOTEE i i SOCIAL YOU SHOULD HEAR WHAT THEY'RE SAYING  a lot.

On the stage were clergy of 50 faiths and a child from each of their denomi- nations. Quoted at the outset were Matthew 19:14: "Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these," and Micah 6:8: "What the Lord re- quires of you: Only to do the right and to love goodness, and to walk humbly with your God." Edelman spoke of the national commitment to children. And chil- dren and adults alike took to the microphone to give testimony of how individuals, families and com- munities made their lives better -- or could. Catholics made their presence known in various ways. Network, the national Catholic social justice lobby founded by women religious, had a booth. Mercy Sister Anne Curtis, a Net- work associate, noted that among the 3,700 endorsers of Stand for Children were the Leadership Conference of Women Religious and the Sisters of Mercy.
