All children - those fortunate enough to stay alive, will grow up one day. With aging, childhood memories will stay. Like so many other children of conflicts in Nigeria, in Myanmar, in South Sudan, in Syria, in Ukraine, in Democratic Republic of Congo, in Mali, in Central Africa Republic, in Iraq and in other lands, what memories will the children of Yemen hold?
As of today - the same tragedy it has been for the past few years, the memories of Yemen's children are filled with despair, suffering, death and conflict. No end to the tragedy appears in sight, thus Yemen's children will continue to sadly suffer whereby extending the list of political and war failures that have victimized far too many of the world's most vulnerable people.
Last Friday, a Facebook post by the United Nations Children Agency, UNICEF, confirmed that Yemen's tragedy is: "The world's largest humanitarian crisis. The world's largest food security emergency. The world's worst cholera outbreak."
Yet, while some leaders of nations traditionally respected and looked upon as the the guardians of liberty, democracy, the pursuit of happiness and the rule of law, continue to gaffe on social media, instead of mounting the needed concerted efforts to sustain peace and stability, millions of the world's children continue to suffer.
The children of Yemen and of other lands are pressured humanitarians who will continue to suffer because of the gross failure of the stalwarts of humanity to put an end to conflicts.
Therefore, the people of Yemen and of all the lands where children are suffering, must now grab hold of their own destinies; and by any means necessary, they should ensure that all children have an opportunity to a brighter future than that which is presented and tolerated today.
