International Children's Day...

International Children's Day. A day to focus on children. A day to put them in the spotlight. The World Conference for the Well-being of Children in Geneva, Switzerland proclaimed June 1 to be International Children's Day in 1925. The holiday is celebrated on 1 June each year and is usually marked with speeches on children's rights and well being, children TV programs, parties, various actions involving or dedicated to children, families going out etc. A good initiative, hopefully addressing ways to make life better for children. A good start, but let's hope it doesn't just stick with this one day. Here's to hoping for a better life for children all over the world. Wishing them more food, water, healthcare, education, housing, sanitation and loving families. Saying a prayer for the millions of children without many of these necessities.
