Summary

What are you going to do for the rest of your life? For David Lawrence, Jr., a brilliant newspaper editor and publisher with a distinguished, three-decade-long journalism career who retired in 1999 at the age of 56, the answer in his words was to dedicate his life to a "[N]ewly energized purposefulness: that every child have a real chance to succeed."

A lifelong champion of children, David Lawrence, Jr., became a leading national advocate for children and was instrumental in founding the Children's Movement of Florida. The Children's Movement of Florida is a national leader in early childhood development, care, and education, with the goal of making Florida the best state in the nation for young children. The movement is focused on making Florida's children, especially in their early years, the number-one priority for state investment.
