Universal Children's Day and Child Protections

Yesterday, November 20, was the United Nations (UN) declared Universal Children's Day, of just plain, Children's Day, even though many countries celebrate an International Children's Day in June of the calendar year. Whatever the celebrated time per country, yesterday's designation was fitting amid too many present events which threaten the futures of too many of the world's children.

Therefore, November 20 should have served and should continue to serve as a reminder to adults to honor the principles of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child to keep children safe, to help them learn and to always uphold children's rights to speak and to be heard.

While mutual exchange and understanding among the world's children abound, specifically marked by the global message of the likes such as Swedish school girl and ecologist, Greta Thunberg, who has inspired millions of children to spur world leaders to act on Climate Change, adults, however, continue to fail to initiate action to benefit and to promote the welfare of the world's children.

Children continue to die in conflicts in Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, Palestine and in other jurisdictions. Children continue to be targets and victims of traffickers of persons. Child labor persists in places in Africa. And incidents of too many children exposed to violence remain too numerous in the Americas, especially in the United States (US).

More so than anything else, humanity's failure to protect the environment, which all children will inherit, and to not act more decisively upon Climate Change, are the biggest testaments yet that the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, remains embarrassingly unfulfilled. 

To help bring the full rights of all children to fruition, adults voting in current and future elections, must install environmental leaders thus rejecting those candidates who would resort back to the coal-burning stifling times of yore. Here's to all the children.
