We take pride in our achievements as the human race, but after all these years of civilization we still haven’t been able to eliminate hunger, disease, and abuse which continue to affect a big part of the humanity as we speak. It seems like we are willing to close our eyes to the fact that many members of the human race are being systematically suppressed and ultimately eradicated because of the live and let die policies that have been imposed on us by those whom we look up to for leadership and guidance.
Yes, children are members of the human race too and it is a shame for all humanity that many of them are still being deprived of the necessities of life even now that we are in the 21 century. Many more children are being displaced or killed because of all the hostilities and wars that the grownups have managed to create all around the World and yet those might be considered to be the lucky ones compared to the children who get torn apart limb by limb before they are even born.
For decades we have been watching sick and hungry children being paraded on TV by those who have been getting rich off of their misery and yet nothing has been done to fix this problem once and for all.
Adequate and timely food, healthcare, shelter, and education are part of the human rights. All children are entitled to having a safe and joyful childhood that is free of hunger, disease, and abuse and that is protected against all the misguided and fanatic agendas of the grownups.
